Izzy Templeton - President
Hi, I’m Izzy and I’m very excited to be President of PaedSoc this year and cannot wait to start working with our fabulous committee. This year will be my third role with this amazing, and I am very excited to continue the work and have another successful year. I have many aims I would love to achieve this year, including continuing the success of the National Student Paediatric Conference (as long as this is permitted with the current restrictions, with plans to change it to a series of talks if it’s not possible), run evening events, and continue to fundraise for our amazing children’s charities. There are a variety of other opportunities to get involved, including Teddy Bear Hospital and fundraising events, and I hope to see you there! If you have any questions about our society this year, or want to find out more, then please do send me a message.
