YAS member announces the European Health Award 2016

Siobhán O’Connor, a new member to the RSE Young Academy of Scotland, was one of only three young academics hand picked from across Europe to help judge and announce the European Health Award 2016. This prestigious award is presented at the European Health Forum Gastein conference in Austria each year. Siobhán, a lecturer in nursing at Edinburgh Napier University, received a Young Forum Gastein scholarship to attend this high level EU health policy conference to represent Scotland. The scholarship is co-funded by the European Commission and WHO Europe, to enable leading young health professionals to attend and participate in the conference.

Many European projects with a health focus are submitted for the European Health Award and Siobhán joined a panel of prestigious judges including Dr Terje Peetso, Health and Wellbeing Unit of DG CONNECT in the European Commission, Professor Martin McKee from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and Albert van der Zeijden, Board Member of the International Forum Gastein, among others to shortlist projects and make the final selection.
