Kerri Milne, a third year BSc (Hons) Environmental Health degree course student at the University of the West of Scotland, presented her award winning essay at the1st World Academic Congress on Environmental Health in Coimbra, Portugal earlier this week. Kerri’s submission ‘World Health – It’s In Our Hands: Can We Beat Ebola?’ was judged to be the best entry in the this year’s Roy Emerson Award which is jointly sponsored by Highfield International and RIAMS.

Henry Healy, who is studying on the same course as Kerri was adjudged to be the runner-up.  The Institute offers its sincere congratulations to Kerri and Henry.

Kerri’s essay will be published in the autumn edition of Environmental Health Scotland due to be published in early October.
