Winners' feedback

"Without the CAHPR award I would not have been able to attend the Public Health England conference to share our work. The financial assistance and abstract support from CAHPR was fantastic. Thank you!"  

John Renshaw, paramedic

“I was impressed with the reach, strategy and data analysis of PHE and was struck how much I could benefit from closer working relationships. I hope to develop strong working relationships in my new role!”

Esther Clift, physiotherapist

"The conference expanded my current knowledge on pertinent public health issues. I was not aware of some of the issues before attending."
