Our University community has Hannah Witheridge in our thoughts this morning as her funeral is held in her home village. The University flag is flying at half mast as a mark of respect and a ‘memory book’ for Hannah will be in the School of Health and Human Sciences foyer until 3pm today for those within the University community to sign and express their condolences. She is deeply missed by everyone who knew her here at Essex.
Our School of Health and Human Sciences is committed to making a difference to local, national and international health, social care and voluntary services through education, research and knowledge transfer.
