Delayed presentation held for the 2020 Intern of the Year

Lucinda Kenny was presented this week with the 2020 Intern of the Year award, an honour delayed by the cancellation of APP2020 in March.

The presentation took place on Tuesday 23 June at the pharmacy where she completed her internship and now works as a community pharmacist – Capital Chemist Calwell.

The presentation was made by the local Federal Member of Parliament, David Smith MP, (ALP Member for the seat of Bean).

Also in attendance were Pharmacy Guild of Australia (ACT) president, Simon Blacker, Guild executive director Suzanne Greenwood and the owner of Capital Chemist Calwell, Elise Thornton. 

Lucinda said that she was honoured to receive the award and represent many newly registered interns and the pharmacy profession at large.

“It’s humbling to be recognised in our profession during such arduous times, where pharmacists, pharmacy assistants and interns are working tirelessly during the coronavirus pandemic. Their adaptability and unfaltering contribution to sustain the health of our communities,” she said.

“The Intern of the Year Award will support me to give back to our profession. I have a profound interest in
dermatology and intend to upskill so I can provide innovative and comprehensive care within a pharmacy
setting.

Through Capital Chemist, I have truly learnt the meaning behind innovation and dedicated service to the community and I wish to align those values within my own pharmacy in the (hopefully near) future,”
she said.
