ANPA Professional Excellence Awards

2014 Winner - Professional Excellence Award in Community Education

Rosemary Dunne

Rosemary Dunne graduated in 2004 with an Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy. She has since gained the qualifications of the Bachelor of Complementary Medicine and Graduate Certificate in Health Professional Education. In 2012, Rosemary accepted the position of Course Coordinator for the Holmesglen Naturopathy Program. As education was the focus for Rosemary, she was well placed to assist ANPA with the recent review of the Health Training Package for Naturopathy. This project spanned two years. Rosemary’s devotion to this project was recently recognised with the Professional Excellence Award in Community Education at the recent ANPA AGM.

About ANPA Professional Excellence Awards

As clinicians, we are all contributors to the social greater good, but it is fair to say there are those who seem to step above the crowd and are outstanding in their endeavors.  We want to reward these people, and ANPA does this through the Personal Excellence Awards.

Members to show your appreciation for services to the profession make your nominations from the categories below.  Please take some time to read and consider the categories for nomination, and if you feel there is someone in your community who should be rewarded for their work, please put them forward for consideration.

We look forward to your submissions and thank you in advance for your contributions.


The categories for ANPA Professional Excellence are:

Excellence in Teaching Award

To encourage teaching excellence in naturopathy and recognise the contribution made by lecturers to the naturopathic profession. To be eligible, the lecturer needs to be teaching in a naturopathy course in either a private college or public university. Nominees do not have to be an ANPA member.

Community Education Award

To encourage community promotion of naturopathy and recognise the contribution made to the profession by practitioners who perform community promotion. All ANPA members are eligible for this award and only ANPA members can be nominated. Nominations can be made by ANPA members and non-members.

Excellence in Naturopathic Business Development

This award recognises the achievements of members in the field of naturopathic business development. Any ANPA member who has developed something new, original and entrepreneurial relating to naturopathy may be nominated. Examples may be some form of enterprise, which incorporates naturopathy, but is not necessarily focused on clinical practice or a new or innovative focus on clinical practice.
