The International Glaucoma Association (IGA) has announced the appointment of a new development manager for the North East.
Hannah Morrow (pictured) joins the charity as one of four development managers covering areas across Wales and the South West, London and the South East, and Scotland.
In the new role, Ms Morrow will be responsible for direct support work with people living with glaucoma, raising awareness and understanding of the condition among the general population of the North East. She will also help to establish patient support groups in order to ensure that advice and support reaches those most in need.
Prior to joining the IGA, Ms Morrow was a development manager for Reviving the West End Ltd (RHWE).
Ms Morrow said she would use her experience “to support people living with glaucoma and their families and carers, enabling them to work closely with service providers to improve quality and access to services across the region.”
Welcoming Ms Morrow to the charity, chief executive of the IGA, Karen Osborn, said: ‘‘Hannah brings a wealth of experience in health and community development, and in her most recent roles she has led on project delivery, participant recruitment, volunteer involvement and monitoring and evaluation, so I’m sure she’ll get off to a speedy and successful start.”
