Margaret Sneddon, who is on the board of Directors of the International Lymphoedema Framework, has received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the British Lymphology Society during the annual BLS Conference in Birmingham on 4th October.
The award was motivated due to the wide recognition of Margaret’s work in lymphoedema education. She has been awarded a University of Glasgow Teaching Excellence Award in 2007 and an international award for Outstanding Contribution to Lymphoedema Education in 2009 by the International Lymphoedema Framework and an Outstanding Contribution to Teaching Award voted for by the students in University of Glasgow in 2014.
Other activities include membership of the Macmillan Lymphoedema Association and Casley-Smith International, involving projects to enhance understanding of lymphoedema in health care professionals and the availability and standard of education nationally and internationally. She is currently a Director for the International Lymphoedema Framework and co-chairs the International Education Committee. She has also served three terms of office as a trustee with the British Lymphology Society, and has just been elected as the new BLS chair.
We congratulate Margaret on her impressive achievements!
