Professor Dawn Brooker - awarded an MBE
We have some lovely news to start the New Year. Professor Dawn Brooker was honoured in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours list with an MBE for services to those affected by dementia. The press release in on our University website.
“I am so pleased to have been recognised in this way. It was totally unexpected, but I am very grateful to those who nominated me and particularly to my team at the Association for Dementia Studies who work so tirelessly to make the world a better place for those affected by dementia. Since the announcement on 31st December, it’s been a huge roller-coaster of emotions reflecting on all of the family, friends and professional colleagues who have influenced me and supported me over the past 35 years. 2020 has been a dreadful year for people living with dementia, their families and the staff that support them which makes receiving this honour particularly poignant. All of you on this circulation list stand shoulder to shoulder with us in the work we do. Over this past year I have been blown away by the strength of the human spirit. People have refused to throw in the towel to say that personhood only matters when we happen to be infection free. People have found ways of connecting, of working around, of keeping their spirits up and of advocating for those whose voices don’t get heard. What I can do is to listen and learn and to amplify these lessons as far and as wide as I can. The MBE gives what we are saying more amplification. Thank you “
