Who is Val Lishman?
Val Lishman was the first medical specialist to work in the South West of Western Australia.
From the outset, Dr Lishman went beyond his duty as a surgeon. He served community hospitals throughout the South West and was active in the community itself especially in the sporting arena.
The Australian Medical Association honour is one of many that have been awarded him.
