Ms Simone Peters (BSc (psychophysiology) (Hons) Swinburne 2011) was awarded the scholarship in 2013. Her PhD thesis explores the link between mental health and gastrointestinal disorders. "I have coeliac disease myself and so mental health and gastrointestinal disease have always been an interest. When I learned about the work that the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics were undertaking I decided that I wanted to study at Monash," Ms Peters said. "The scholarship has allowed me to complete my PhD. Without it I would not have been able to support myself and my family." The Andrea Joy Logan Trust Fund also funds the Andrea Joy Logan Award, which is $500 awarded annually to the student gaining the Highest Overall Marks for the Honours Year in the Nutrition Department at Monash. Sadly, Geoff Wilson died in March 2014.
