NPS MedicineWise Chair Dr Andrew Knight has thanked Debbie Rigby for her “invaluable” contribution to NPS MedicineWise over the past twelve years
Ms Rigby is stepping down as a director of the company after reaching the maximum term of service.
An internationally recognised consultant clinical and practice pharmacist, Ms Rigby is a member of DVA Veteran’s MATES Practitioner Reference Group, a Clinical Reference Lead to the Australian Digital Health Agency, adjunct senior lecturer at the School of Pharmacy, University of Queensland and Visiting Fellow, Queensland University of Technology. It was announced last week that she received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia.
“Debbie’s extensive experience, insights and understanding of the challenges faced by pharmacists, combined with her influence and corporate knowledge, has benefited our continued support of the pharmacy sector,” said Dr Knight.
“During her 12 years as non-executive director on the NPS MedicineWise board, one of the focuses of her work was as a member and former chair of the Audit and Risk Committee.
“Debbie works with a forthright and methodical approach, and always demonstrated a high capacity of commitment to the NPS MedicineWise board and our mission to enable the best decisions about medicines and health technologies,” he said.
“We thank Debbie for her important contribution on the NPS MedicineWise board, congratulate her on her Lifetime Achievement Award from the PSA, and wish her continued success in her future endeavours,” said Dr Knight.
