Megan becomes Scotland and Northern Ireland Regional Coordinator after her election at the Spring General Assembly in Sheffield, making this her first term on National Committee

“I’m excited to see more opportunities for branch members to engage with and influence the fight against health inequities at an international level”

The Regional Coordinators (RCs) are the first point of contact for Branches for ongoing support, development and questions.

The RCs facilitate regional-level activities, such as regional meetings and training days.
