Mater Young Adult Health Centre Brisbane (MYAHCB) was recently invited to Washington DC to receive the highly prestigious Hilary E.C. Millar Award for Innovative Approaches to Adolescent Health Care.
Presented by The Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine, it is awarded annually to individuals or organisations involved in adolescent healthcare.
The Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine is a multidisciplinary organisation dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of adolescents and young adults, both physically and psychosocially.
Past recipients of the award across various clinical, educational and research programs include:
MYAHCB Manager, Mr Greg McGahan, attended the ceremony at The Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine’s international conference in Washington on Friday 8 March 2019 to accept the award.
Mr McGahan says the award is great recognition of the staff who contribute to MYAHCB and their focus on delivering exceptional care to young people through advocacy, clinical care, health promotion, professional development and research.
“The Hilary E.C. Millar Award recognises Mater Young Adult Health Centre Brisbane for its consumer engagement, research activities and broad range of clinical programs. We’re incredibly proud to be recognised among previous recipients in the World Health Organisation and Boston Medical Centre, among others,” said Mr McGahan.
Over the last five years, MYAHCB has expanded their offering to meet the greater needs of the community, including inpatient services for young people in hospital, access to specialist health clinics, professional emotional health support, as well as free, confidential services for young people who experience issues with substance use.
“The centre opened five years ago and during this time, have developed an integrated model of care with the needs of young people at the centre of everything we do,” said Mr McGahan.
