We’re extremely proud to announce that Chairman of the Board of Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, Doug Snedden has been recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List as an Officer of Australia for his extraordinary service to society.
Doug Snedden is a great Australian who has given to his country in so many ways. He is a passionate advocate for Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, giving freely of his time and counsel as Chairman which is a voluntary position.
Thanks to his determination and dedication to Chris O’Brien’s vision and his steady hand, Chris O’Brien Lifehouse has emerged as a leader in cancer care, where patients have better chances of survival across many types of cancer than the state average. Doug has never lost sight of the fact that cancer care must be delivered with the utmost compassion and humanity, ensuring that we strive to enhance the experience of our patients.
Doug is exceedingly generous with his time and expertise. He has made significant contributions to the success of the Black Dog Institute and Odyssey House, organisations that support people through mental health and addiction challenges.
Doug is an exceptionally active member of the community, serving on the boards of arts, medical and community not-for-profit organisations, applying his strategic mind and business expertise to guide them through their challenges and successes.
Everything he does is imbued with a passionate desire to give back, never seeking accolades or thanks. Congratulations Doug, we are incredibly proud of you and grateful for your ongoing support.
