13 June 2024

A public health expert from The Australian National University (ANU) is among the distinguished members of the university community named on the 2024 King’s Birthday Honours List.

Dr Stephanie Davis, former research fellow and Honorary Senior Lecturer at the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health (NCEPH), has been awarded a Public Service Medal as part of the COVID-19 Honour Roll for her outstanding contributions throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

In March 2020, Dr Davis was seconded from NCEPH to assist with the Federal Government’s initial response to the COVID-19 pandemic. On the pandemic frontline, she played crucial roles in preparing vital training for healthcare workers and facilitating the rollout of urgent care clinics.

The public health physician, general practitioner and infectious diseases epidemiologist has since become Deputy Chief Medical Officer with the Department of Health and Aged Care. She is also a Master of Philosophy in Applied Epidemiology and a recent PhD graduate at NCEPH.

Several members of the ANU community have been recognised by the Honours List, with five appointed Members of the Order of Australia (AM), two awarded Medals of the Order of Australia (OAM), and one named a Companion of the Order of Australia (AC).
