The AMMA Patron's Prize is awarded by the Association's Patron, Air Vice Marshal, Dr Hugh Bartholomeusz, Surgeon General Defence Force Reserves, for the best paper written by a Member of the Association published in a peer review journal during each financial year. The Prize is a certificate and a prize of $250.

It was awarded for her paper entitled "Pain-related musculoskeletal disorders, psychological comorbidity, and the relationship with physical and mental well-being in Gulf War veterans".

The research and analysis that formed the basis for this paper, was funded by a Defence Health Foundation Grant for Medical Research - Booster Grant in 2011-12 and the research was based on data from the Australian Gulf War Veterans' Health Study 2000-2002, funded by the Department of Veterans' Affairs.
