Wesley Medical Research welcomes new Patron in Chief
Wesley Medical Research is excited to welcome Her Excellency the Honourable Dr Jeannette Young AC PSM, Governor of Queensland as Patron in Chief.
Her Excellency was sworn in as the 27th Governor of Queensland on 1 November 2021 as representative of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queensland’s Head of State.
In her role as Governor, she will work to unify and promote, encourage and recognise Queenslanders across a wide range of community interests. The acceptance of vice-regal patronage from worthy organisations and events, which aim to improve the lives of Queenslanders, is the principal way in which this support is provided. Her Excellency has extensive experience supporting Queenslanders through her exemplary work and accomplishments in medicine and public health, and most recently as Chief Health Officer.
Dr Claudia Giurgiuman, CEO of Wesley Medical Research said “We are extremely honoured to welcome Her Excellency as our new Chief Patron. Together we will work to achieve immediate improvements in patient care and quality of life through applied medical research, to give hope and change the lives of sick and vulnerable people.”
