About Cheryl Burman

The award pays tribute to Cheryl Burman, a key individual who provided exceptional leadership in the NSW viral hepatitis response. Cheryl served on the Board of the Hepatitis C Council of NSW from 1993 to 2000, and as our President from 1995 to 1999. Cheryl made significant contributions to the governance and leadership of our organisation for almost seven years, and continued to support Hepatitis NSW. Sadly, Cheryl died on 9 August 2011 after her very long struggle with hepatitis C. We are pleased to name this Award in Cheryl’s memory and honour.
