For the sixth consecutive year, the University is the Official Learning Partner of the NGV’s Melbourne Winter Masterpieces. The NGV is a spectacular venue and, with over 300 guests in attendance, the atmosphere throughout the evening was warm and inspiring. The exhibition was brought to life for guests by Annika Aitken, Curatorial Project Officer of Asian Art as she talked about the history and significance of this exhibition.

Guests included Dr Ron Rosanove, Mrs Elizabeth Rosanove and their daughter Merrianne Rosanove. The Rosanove Family have supported over 60 scholarships for medical students since 2014. Dr Hans Prem, who established the Dr Angelika Zimmerman Medical Scholarship in memory of his wife to support medical students in financial need, attended with Ms Manqing Zhao. Also present were Mrs and Dr Goode, who support a range of projects at the University, including Professor Rob Moodie’s work at the Malawi College of Medicine.

This was the first time the faculty held such an event. It provided both entertainment and an opportunity for the Dean to thank supporters for gifts large and small. And most importantly to share with donors the significant difference their generosity makes to the faculty.
