Addressing health inequalities in BME communities
Winners of the Mary Seacole award speak about projects they devised to improve the health of black and minority ethnic communities
The two recipients of 2014's Mary Seacole leadership awards are pressing ahead with their innovative projects addressing health inequalities in black and ethnic minority (BME) communities.
Parveen Ali, lecturer in the school of nursing and midwifery at Sheffield University, is investigating whether BME nurses use their language skills to speak to patients in their first language. Angela Ditchfield was awarded the leadership grant for her project to change attitudes towards organ donation in BME communities.
