Glenda Powell Travelling Fellow (GPTF)

Glenda Powell Travelling Fellow (GPTF)

In 2014, the AAG initiated the National Travelling Fellow. In 2015, it was named the Glenda Powell National Travelling Fellow (GPNTF) after the first female President of the AAG. The Glenda Powell National Travelling Fellow is a leading Australian expert who will present on the AAG Hot Topic for the year whilst travelling to AAG Divisions not visited by the Gary Andrews Visiting Fellow.

Each year, Divisions have the opportunity to host either the Gary Andrews Visiting Fellow or the Glenda Powell Travelling Fellow. Efforts are made to alternate between the two speakers over consecutive years but this is not always logistically possible.

2015 Glenda Powell Travelling Fellow - Professor Elizabeth Beattie - Professor of Aged and Dementia Care, Director of the Dementia Collaborative Research Centre: Carers and Consumers

2014 National Travelling Fellow - Professor Leon Flicker - Professor of Geriatric Medicine at the University of Western Australia
