Susan Lewis Memorial Award

The UK Gauchers Association in memory of Susan Lewis, who died in May 2007, has established the Susan Lewis Memorial Award.

The Susan LewisMemorial Award was established in 2008 to provide grants and bursaries to doctors and other healthcare professionals from developing countries to allow them to travel to the UK Centres of Excellence to undertake mentoring and educational programmes in the treatment and management of Gaucher Disease.

The UK Gauchers Association are delighted to announce that the fund has now been expanded to provide support in other areas of education including; bursaries for post docs to attend conferences; UK specialists to visit overseas clinics to provide support and guidance to doctors in developing countries; specialists involved in the LSD field to travel to educational lectures and LSD Conferences and medical students to do their electives overseas.
