Tribute to Professor Val Curtis
Jane has really been inspired by Professor Curtis, a Public Health expert based at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. She saved millions of lives through her work on ‘behaviour settings’ for sanitation and hand washing. Sadly, cancer took her life in October 2020. But her message lives on, and one of her ‘marching orders’ was to have more collaboration between scientists and creative health writers.(1)
