SAM Honorary life fellowship

Doctor Elizabeth Myers, nursing consultant at NHS Tayside, was awarded the Society for Acute Medicine’s (SAM) honorary life fellowship at the SAM sixth International Conference.

It is the first time a member of the nursing staff has been awarded an honorary life fellowship by SAM and demonstrates SAM’s commitment to the importance of the multi-professional team in acute medicine.

Dr Myers was an executive council member of SAM from 2002 to 2011 and is a strong and powerful advocate for patients, nurses and allied health professionals.

The fellowship is a recognition of her invaluable input and her work with SAM.
