Grace Dibben is a PhD student based at the ECEHH.

Grace recently attended the BACPR Annual Conference in London where she was awarded the ‘best oral abstract’ prize for her presentation about her systematic review, ‘Does cardiac rehabilitation impact physical activity levels of heart disease patients?’.

The BACPR‘s (British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation) mission is to support health professionals in the development, delivery and assessment of evidence-based, individualised programmes of prevention and rehabilitation which have been appropriately funded and which are accessed both by individuals with established Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) and those with significant CVD risk factors.

Congratulations to Grace on her fantastic achievement.
