The 2021 Bill Wheeler Symposium is happening tomorrow night, August 17, hosted virtually during Science Week this year and featuring guest presenter Dr Bruce Ashford, a neck and head surgeon from Wollongong Hospital.


The Annual Symposium will also award this year’s Bill Wheeler winner with $2,000 of community-raised funds, supported by the Kiama Rotary Club, going to a University of Wollongong (UOW) student who best describes the social impact of their research.


In the build-up to the Symposium, we caught up with some of the previous winners to find out what receiving the award meant to them. Read what they had to say below – and be sure to register to join us virtually for the Symposium here.
