Professor Moira Clay, director of academic and research services at the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research, Perth, and a vocal participant in the Discoveries Need Dollars campaign, said Professor Hilton was instrumental to the campaign's success. "Doug developed strategies to reach many sectors of the community," she said. "The success of the campaign was that it gained support from thousands of people, not only wi
