Shining a light on research excellence
Blueprint Wealth was pleased to be part of Cancer Council WA’s Research Awards held on March 27, 2015, an event which recognises and celebrates the best and brightest cancer researchers here in Western Australia. Through a partnership formed with Cancer Council WA in 2014, Blueprint Wealth funded the 2015 Early Career Cancer Researcher of the Year Award. Dr Prue Cormie has been awarded for her work in investigating the role of exercise in the management of cancer.
This Award is one of Cancer Council WA’s Research Excellence Awards, established to recognise and celebrate researchers here in Western Australia.
Along with recognising outstanding work by cancer researchers, the Research Awards highlights important work they are leading in a diverse range of fields which has the potential to benefit many West Australians in the future. David Baruffi, Director of Blueprint Wealth said, “It was an honour to meet those researchers who are working towards a cancer-free future for our community. We are proud to support such a worthy cause that affects too many Australians.”
Dr Prue Cormie, who is a past Cancer Council Postdoctoral Research Fellow and an Accredited Exercise Physiologist from Edith Cowan University’s Health & Wellness Institute, has been awarded the Early Career Cancer Researcher of the Year Award.
This award is a fantastic recognition of the importance and the value of the work our team has been doing and how much it’s been influencing the lives of people affected by cancer,” she said. “I hope my award will encourage more Western Australians to exercise and also promote greater awareness about how exercise can help improve the quality of life in cancer patients and survivors.”
The partnership with Cancer Council WA is important and meaningful to the team at Blueprint Wealth. We have been providing pro-bono financial advice for the last several years to individuals who are going through cancer treatment and have seen first-hand the challenges that people face during this time. Our team is committed to continuing to provide this advice and support.
