Hopkins Annual Awards Celebrated at Meet and Mingle

The Hopkins Centre was excited recently to have it's first networking event of the year at the THC Meet and Mingle, Christmas edition, on 10 December 2020.

We heard from the THC executive team on Centre and research achievement from 2020, as well as the outlook and objectives for 2021 and into the future.

This year highlighted how well the Centre handled the pressures of growth and the impacts of COVID-19, continuing to go above our own expectations and continue to meet all reseach obligations and funding. 2020 saw centre members manage the impacts of COVID-19 across our working environments, in our projects, at home with family and across the community. We saw first hand the amazing resilience of our researchers, clinicans and members, as well as the support that you gave one another and the people you work with in the hospital, in the community at schools with government colleagues, wherever that may be. In 2021, we hope to take forward what continues to work so well at Hopkins - that is your efforts and collaborative work with other practitioners, other researchers and importantly people with lived experience. This collaborative approach will continue to ensure we deliver bold new ideas and better outcomes in our research and continue to sustain our activities through funding opportunities and importantly helps continue the quality rehabilitation and disability services to deliver better outcomes for people living with disability.
