The Queensland Medical Women’s Society (QMWS) would like to congratulate Dr Barbara Woodhouse as one of four Queensland Finalists for the 2023 Australian of the Year.
Dr Woodhouse is celebrated as the first dual qualified, female Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon in Australia. She has worked tirelessly as an advocate, pioneer and leader in her field.
Many AFMW members will have met Barbara in New York, at the MWIA Centennial in 2019 where she attended with other QMWS and AFMW members.
“Dr Barbara Woodhouse exemplifies courage, sacrifice, kindness, dedication and humility”
We look forward to the live broadcast of the Queensland Australian of the Year Awards on 15 November at 4.30pm (QR Scan supplied).
There is also a guest book, administered by her colleague Dr Anna Raymond, where photos and messages of congratulations can be made and viewed (QR Scan code below).
