Antibiotic Prescribing Patterns in Two Diverse Paediatric Communities
"The John Snow Scholarship is a fantastic experience for medical students. The opportunity to present your work on a national level and meet like-minded individuals passionate about public health is invaluable. I found the chance to meet public health trainees and hear current work in the public health arena to be inspiring. Receiving the scholarship has allowed an unparalleled insight into public health training and the various pathways one can undertake in the future. The John Snow Scholarship has only furthered my passion in public health and its potential as a future career path.
I strongly encourage all students who have an interest in community driven change and equity to apply. Throughout the conference, the Australasian Faculty of Public Health Medicine were a huge support. They made every effort to engage with the students and made us all feel incredibly included in all Faculty events."

The Impacts of Colonisation on the Inequities of Smoking During Pregnancy in Aotearoa
"Representing Aotearoa New Zealand as a John Snow Scholarship finalist was a privilege and invaluable learning experience. As a representative, I was given a platform to voice my concerns about the inequity that exists in smoking during pregnancy in Aotearoa New Zealand, and the role that colonization had in establishing and perpetuating these. It was inspiring to see so many health professionals who are dedicating their careers these critical, yet often overlooked, problems in healthcare. It was great to meet the other John Snow Scholarship finalists, who presented on a variety of topics ranging from infectious disease to mental health. I am confident that they are the leaders that our patients and healthcare systems need."

Putting feet first: Improving the provision of diabetic foot care at a remote ACCHS
"It was a blessing to have the opportunity to attend and present at the RACP congress as part of the John Snow Scholarship. It proved a great experience to meet like-minded students, interact with public health trainees and further understand the often ambiguous role of a public health physician. The presentation itself was a great opportunity to further develop your public speaking skills and share your ideas in front of a passionate audience. I would encourage all students to apply for the John Snow Scholarship, if only to witness some of the incredible work public health physicians do."
