Andrew contracted viral meningitis as a child and is passionate about the work Meningitis Now does both in trying to eradicate meningitis and supporting those affected by it.
“I am delighted to be joining the Board of Meningitis Now at such an exciting time in the new organisation’s life. There is still so much to do to make sure that everyone can identify the signs of meningitis, to develop vaccines and support those affected by meningitis. I am looking forward to working with the Board and staff team to continue to make real progress in all these areas”.
