This year also saw the beginning of a three year partnership with Hawthorn Football Club and the Rioli Fund for Aboriginal Health, in which Menzies is one of their community partners. There have been two departures from the Board this year; Ms Roslynne Bracher unfortunately left us due to her increasing work and travel commitments, and Professor Helen Garnett retired as Vice Chancellor of Charles Darwin University and from the Menzies Board. We also said farewell to the outgoing staff representative on the Board, Mr Trevor Hopps. On behalf of the Board I would like to thank them all for their contributions and wish them well for the future. The Board has tightened up a number of its processes in 2008, with risk assessment procedures, a Board Charter, an annual Board calendar and annual Board evaluation processes now engaged. On behalf of the Board I would like to congratulate Professor Carapetis both personally for his year as Northern Territorian of the Year; and together with all Menzies staff and students for their continued outstanding contributions to improving the health outcomes of Indigenous and other Australians and those of our near neighbours in the Pacifi c and South East Asia. Many thanks also to the numerous community and other partners across the country and beyond. The new year ahead is full of challenges and uncertainties, as well as excitement; what we can know for sure is that the need for our work will continue. Professor Simon Maddocks, Chair 15
