A SELFLESS Edge Hill student has been shortlisted in the Student Nursing Times Awards.
Emma Grady, who helped set-up a ground-breaking social platform to connect students during lockdown, is in the running for the Outstanding Contribution to Student Affairs award.
Emma said that if she won it would be “for all the students at Edge Hill who are doing amazing things.”
The 34-year-old said: “I’m quite shocked but really proud because I feel like this is for all the students at Edge Hill who are going above and beyond but not shouting about it.”
The mum-of-two is just starting the last year of an integrated Mental Health Nursing and Social Work Masters degree.
In addition to co-founding the Integrated Health and Social Care society, Emma was also a key organiser in a World Mental Health Day event.
Emma, a healthcare support worker for the Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Trust, was also pivotal in the creation of The Student Social Work Hub, a virtual group set up by seven students from across the country to help students connect and share best practice during Covid-19 lockdown.
The winners of the 2021 Student Nursing Times Awards will be announced in November.
