Havi Carel wins the Health Humanities Medal Inspiration Award

Havi and Jane Macnaughton receiving their Inspiration Award

13 September 2018

Congratulations to Havi Carel who has won the Health Humanities "Inspiration Award" Medal from the AHRC and Wellcome Trust

Havi, together with Jane Macnaughton from Durham University, received the award for the ‘Life of Breath’ project which explores breathlessness from a health humanities perspective. The project aims to make breathlessness and the associated suffering more visible. It engages with respiratory patients with limited mobility, seeking to interact with them in their local community rather than in a clinical setting, revealing the authentic stories of these ‘invisible’ lives.

The "Life of Breath" project was also short-listed for the "Best Research" Medal.
