New discoveries; new hope…through innovative research.
Our purpose is to provide Fellowships to emerging WA based child health researchers.
Our vision is that our Fellows will develop into major contributors to knowledge and delivery in child health.
Well done to the BrightSpark netball team who won their division of the Revolution Sports netball league in a nail-biting final on Tuesday night.
Every year, the Western Australian Medical Students' Society (WAMSS) holds a fundraiser called Scrubbers Day where UWA medical students assemble in various wild costumes at 5am to rattle tins for charity. This year they were out in force on the streets of Perth collecting on behalf of BrightSpark. We are very grateful for their support and for the astounding $6028 they raised. Thanks to all at WAMS
One of our great success stories is UFPA. Speaking to its founder, Ernie Bridge, recently he said that the first cheque they ever received was $12,000 from BrightSpark Foundation back in 2002. This was at a time when no other funding was available. Ernie passionately believed that diabetes in the Aboriginal community was rife and growing at an alarming rate.
A dedicated director of the Child Health Research Foundation of WA (Inc.) for over 17 years. Diana's strength of character, ethics and devotion to the job in hand made a significant contribution to the work of the Foundation. She passed away on the 18 April 2010 and will be sorely missed.
