The 22nd winner of the annual HealthWatch Award is to be Simon Singh, the author, journalist and mathematician. As well as being an accomplished communicator of science, his award recognizes his courage in fighting a libel suit, at considerable personal cost, and in doing so inspiring the movement which has resulted in a new law: the 2013 Defamation Act.

Simon will address the audience at the 2014 HealthWatch open meeting and Annual General Meeting. The meeting will also include presentations of cheques for up to £500 each to the winners in the UK-wide HealthWatch Student Prize competition in which students of medicine and allied professions show their skills in assessing research protocols. Awards will be presented by journalist and broadcaster Nick Ross.

The 2014 HealthWatch AGM and awards will take place Thursday 30th October 2014 at The Medical Society of London, Lettsom House, 11 Chandos Street, London W1G 9EB (nearest underground station Oxford Street). The evening will begin with a reception at 6.30pm, with awards presentation at approximately 7.30pm.

Attendance at the meeting is free and open to all, but the presentation will be followed by an optional buffet dinner with wine at 8.45 p.m. at a cost of £45, apply by clicking here and submitting completed form.
