2019 Troy Pocock Meningococcal Scholarship for Medicine
Troy Pocock, a local to the Shoalhaven area, contracted Meningococcal disease while on a working holiday in London. Troy died within hours of the initial onset of the disease. He had turned 21 only days before his death.
In April 2004 Troy’s parents Larraine and Richard along with his brother Scott formed the Troy Pocock Meningococcal Foundation Inc to honour Troy’s memory and fill the void left by the closure of the Meningitis Trust.
With the help of family, friends and community, they have managed to not only fundraise for the cause, but educate the community about this insidious disease. The Troy Pocock Scholarship is the result of that fund raising. The intention of the Troy Pocock Meningococcal Foundation is to make an impact in the medical community to fight Meningococcal through education of Doctors, present and future.
Open from 01/Mar/2019 to 12/Aug/2019
