Eye health champions recognised in Queen’s Birthday Honours
We are delighted to congratulate two long-standing members of the CERA community, Barry Jones and Terry Nolan, who were recognised in yesterday’s Queen’s Birthday Honours.
The Hon Dr Barry Jones AC was a Director of CERA from 2000 to 2011. Through his connections in politics and government, he made a very important contribution to the development of CERA by providing advice on government engagement and as a champion for CERA’s work, especially in health economics and policy advocacy.
Barry has helped raise awareness about eye health issues generally and glaucoma in particular among policy makers and in the community. He is Chairman of Vision 2020 Australia, Australia’s peak body for the eye health sector.
Among his many other appointments, Barry is also an Honorary Governor of CERA and an Honorary Fellow at the University of Melbourne.
Professor Terry Nolan AO has served as a Director of CERA since 2010. Terry is Foundation Head of the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health at The University of Melbourne, and Associate Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences.
Terry was named an Officer of the Order of Australia “for distinguished service to medicine as a leader in the field of epidemiology and population health, to policy development and advisory roles in immunisation, and to education.”
