Children’s Community Services prize winners!

 Some of the staff in Children’s Community Services attended the East Midlands Public Health conference in Derby last week.

 Emma Heath (school nurse) and Lisa Brooks (health visitor) were winners of 2 of the 4 prizes for their posters displayed at the conference. 

Lisa presented a poster on her work around the role of the health visitor in supporting smoking cessation in the postnatal period.

Emma presented a poster on her work with vulnerable girls who were undertaking risk-taking behaviours around their sexual health. 

Posters were submitted from police, councils, voluntary sectors and other health providers within the region. 

The prizes were donations to Shelter and Oxfam on their behalf. Well done ladies!
