The Susie Harris Travel Fellowship aims to promote overseas activities that will enhance the quality of services, management or research for people living with MND. It provides funds to attend the 2017 International Symposium on ALS/MND, in addition to visiting a laboratory, hospital or care centre for training in new techniques, knowledge or conduct of collaborative research valuable for MND. This Fellowship is funded by the Susie Harris Memorial Fund, in memory of the late Susie Harris.
