Celebrating International Women’s Day

Posted on 9 March 2021

We are delighted that Dr Jess Morgan has been included among 15 inspirational women featured in a book published British Medical Association’s Women in Academic Medicine Group women to celebrate International Women’s Day 2021.

The book, which spotlights 15 women from across the academic medical sphere, celebrates achievements, career highs, great advice and opportunities. It offers readers an insight into the diverse and exciting world of medical academia. Each of the women highlighted have been nominated by one or more of their colleagues and mentees.

Dr Morgan was nominated by her colleague Melody Redman for her enthusiasm, honesty and commitment.

She said: “I was humbled to be nominated to be part of this book, and to feature alongside so many inspirational women. I’m so thankful for the many incredible team members I’ve been able to work with, including some amazing mentors and role models. Being a clinical academic is a real privilege - it’s such an interesting, empowering, and rewarding career.”

CRD Director Lesley Stewart said: “It is fantastic that Jess has been recognised in this way. Ever since she joined CRD as a PhD student, her commitment to doing research that makes a difference to children and young people with cancer and their families, and implementing findings, has been evident”.
