Margaret Grayson awarded Iris Colvin Lifetime Achievement Award for Health

HSC R&D Division would like to congratulate Margaret Grayson who was presented with the Iris Colvin Lifetime Achievement Award for Health by the Women's Forum Northern Ireland at an awards ceremony at Belfast City Hall on 21 April 2018.

Margaret is Chair of the Northern Ireland Cancer Research Consumer Forum (NICRCF) which was established to increase personal and public involvement in cancer research across Northern Ireland.  It is co-ordinated by the Northern Ireland Cancer Trials Centre and supports consumers across the various cancer research groups within Health and Social Care Trusts, Queen’s University Belfast, University of Ulster and beyond. Margaret is also a member of Public Involvement Enhancing Research (PIER).

The Women’s Forum Northern Ireland is an “umbrella” body for women’s organisations in the Province.  Currently, it continues to represent a broad range of constituent organisations and hence approaching 100,000 women across Northern Ireland. It is an apolitical and anti-sectarian voluntary organisation which seeks to enhance the role and influence of women in the life of our society, to empower individuals to achieve change and to promote equality of opportunity for women.
