Northern regional coordinator - Laura Shepherd

Hi, my name's Laura and I'm the northern regional co-ordinator.

Following a splendid 2012, World AIDS day being a memorable time, events varied from condom distribution and human ribbons to bake sales and money-raising fun, we've got an exciting year coming up in the northern region...Hello 2013!!

Many branches in the region will be showing the 'They go to die' documentary in collaboration with RESULTS. Furthermore the great Global Health Conference in Glasgow will be drawing all of us from far and wide to learn about migration, its causes and effects on health. Not only that, but the northern region will be collaborating together in order to improve communication between branches and brain-storming ideas for global health activity in the north. 

If you are interested in finding out more about the region please contact me at northerncoordinator@medsin.org
