Award for early career research

21 August 2020

Congratulations to Jade Skeates for being chosen as the winner of the Clinical Award 2020 by the Heberden Committee for her abstract submitted to the British Society for Rheumatology Annual Conference 2020 entitled ‘Evaluation of a 10 week progressive resistance training programme for people with inflammatory arthritis’.  Jade has received a trophy and £250 as well as publication in the journal ‘Rheumatology’ and the opportunity to present her research at the Annual Conference in 2020.  Her abstract was accepted for oral presentation at EULAR’s e-congress in June 2020 and has been accepted for oral presentation at the PhysioUK Conference in November this year too. BIRD is delighted with Jade’s budding research career, having funded her attendance at the BSR conference in 2019 to help her into research.
