Lymphoedema expert wins BMA award

A children’s book on lymphoedema has won the British Medical Association patient information award at the BMA Book Awards 2010.

Author Dr Jacquelyne Todd, physiotherapist consultant in lymphoedema at Leeds NHS trust, wrote The Big Book of Lymphoedema as an activity book for children. It provides information on the condition and its treatment, as well as word searches, pop-up sections and colouring-in sections. ‘I am particularly pleased as this will help to raise the profile of this poorly recognised condition among the medical profession,’ she said.
