This award celebrates the life of Dr Debbie Stach, who died tragically in a car accident in 2004 soon after completing her GP training with the former Northern Training General Practice Education (NTGPE).
Debbie was an impressive young doctor whose commitment to Indigenous health made her stand out among her peers.
