Join the Sarah Hughes Lecture to analyse John Keats influence on both beauty and truth as applied to medicine and the humanities and evaluate the effect of truth on creative journalism, particularly as it relates to medicine and humanity.
The winners of the Sarah Hughes Trust Prize, in conjunction with the Medical Journalist Association, will present their work following the lecture from Professor Nicholas Roe. The prize is for emerging or established journalists working with healthcare practitioners or media outlets that expose the use of false or misleading information (so-called ‘fake news) in health and medicine. The purpose of the prize is to further educational activities between journalists and healthcare practitioners while taking into account both equality and diversity.
Sarah Hughes, a journalist, died from breast cancer in 2021 at the age of 48. Her family and friends have raised funds for an annual lecture to be held under the auspices of the RSM History of Medicine Society. Sarah was a history graduate from St Andrews University and was fascinated by, studied and wrote about the human condition in all its manifestations, good or bad, real or imagined.
