Public Relations and Communications Director

Lizzie O’Brien

Hi I’m Lizzie and I can’t wait to get started as this year’s Public

Relations and Communications Director! I think it wins the prize

for the longest name but essentially means I’m in charge of SfGH’s

social media and spreading the word of SfGH’s fantastic work!

I’ll be working closely with Kurchi to bring exciting and engaging

content to the national SfGH social media and communications

strategy. We have lots of plans for the year ahead, including shout

outs to local branches and SfGH events. If you have anything you

would like shared, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

We’re hoping to continue the great work from last year’s committee to strengthen the SfGH  branding and we’ll be in touch with ways to keep up the SfGH image at a branch level. We’re also really keen to hear from members for anything else you would like to see from SfGH media so please do let us know.

I’m in my third year of medicine at Cardiff and have thoroughly enjoyed my time with SfGH so far – I’m excited to get stuck in this year and see how far we can spread the message of SfGH!
