The Winifred Ditchfield Educational Award
An educational award, in memory of the late Mrs Winifred Ditchfield, who had Paget’s disease, was presented to Elizabeth Radley at one of our Information Events, in Nottingham by Professor Grayson Ditchfield, who is Mrs Ditchfield’s son.
A Public Education Programme
Elizabeth, a PhD student at the University of Nottingham, used the Award to produce public education kits designed to raise awareness and understanding of Paget’s disease.
You may have read in our magazine about the research at Norton Priory in Runcorn. Elizabeth produced a portable and reusable exhibit to showcase this research. With links to medicine, archaeology and history, it is envisaged that the exhibit will attract interest from a wide audience. It will include hands‑on activities and be accessible for school and university events, national science festivals, and for community use. You can read more by following this link.
We look forward to receiving further interesting applications for the Educational Award.
