PROFESSOR TAKES UP NEW CHAIR

 

piccap: Lincoln Co-op Society has endowed a new chair of Health Studies at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside.

 

Prof Peter Birchenall, pictured right, has taken up the new position which coincides with the establishment of the Lincoln Institute of Health Studies to be housed at the Lincoln campus.

 

Prof Birchenall is pictured at the university with Lincoln Co-op chief executive Keith Darwin.

 

I feel honoured that the Co-operative Society should see fit to endow my chair in this way which adds even further credence to the importance of Health Studies within the university curriculum, said Prof Birchenall.
