KING EDDIES COOKBOOK

We are creating a King Eddies cookbook – Bun in the Oven – Recipes and Stories from our King Eddies Family – and we would dearly love to have contributions from our King Eddies family. Money raised will be used for Alumni initiatives which support KEMH staff and preservation of our shared history.

One of those initiatives is the KEMH Alumni Perpetual Edith Cowan Award which will celebrate Edith Cowan’s work in helping to establish our hospital. Each year an amount will be awarded for conference attendance/further study that supports and enables excellence in care to women, their infants, and families. All current staff of the Women and Newborn Health Service will be eligible to apply for the award.  

Reserve your copy of this limited edition cookbook by pre-ordering using the pre-order form on this website.

If you have any questions, please email KEMH.Alumni@outlook.com
