An assistant lecturer in Psychology at the University of the South Pacific (USP) School of Social Sciences has been recognised for her community work and education initiatives at the school.

Shazna Buksh was awarded the inaugural Higher Education Research and Development Society of Australasia (HERDSA) Roger Landbeck Professional Development Fund Award during the HERDSA Conference 2016 held in Fremantle, Western Australia.

The award aims to promote higher education teaching and learning with a particular focus on equity and social justice.

The HERDSA Roger Landbeck Professional Development Award will fund Ms Buksh to undertake an online Professional Development Course on Diagnosing, Assessing and Managing Eating Disorders, offered by the University of Sydney.

The award will further support Ms Buksh’s community outreach programme at USP for supporting adoption of better health practices to control obesity in Fiji.

The programme will be embedded in the first-year experience of undergraduate students at USP.
