Welcome to the summer edition of Lumen. This issue features alumni and the difference they are making in their fields - Annabel Crabb in journalism, Adam Kimber in law and cricket, and Moya Dodd who is working at the highest level in international football.

It also features Dr Basil Hetzel AC, who was recently awarded an honorary Doctor of the University degree for his distinguished service to medical research. 

Basil is one of many alumni who studied medicine or health sciences and used their careers to profoundly better the lives of others. 

The University remains deeply immersed in health education and research, ensuring the next generation of health professionals can continue to improve the quality of life for Australians and people across the globe. As the new Royal Adelaide Hospital nears completion, we are building a health and medical sciences building nearby, in the SA Health and Biomedical Precinct at Adelaide’s west-end. The facility will transform health treatment, training and discovery and will ensure we continue to train a health workforce of the highest quality. 

To build a new health and medical school happens only once in a century – and you have the unique opportunity to be involved in this special project, by adding your name to the Donors’ Wall. To learn more, read the article on page 13

I hope you enjoy reading this edition of Lumen.
