My role


International nursing award for Alan

MHF chair Alan White has won the Robert Tiffany International Award at the Nursing Standard Nurse Awards for his pioneering research into men’s health in Europe.

The prestigious annual ceremony was hosted by broadcaster Angela Rippon and held in London’s Park Lane Hilton hotel last month.

Alan said: 'I am absolutely delighted to win this award. It was fantastic to receive the recognition of being shortlisted, but to win is truly an honour.'

Alan, who is chair of the MHF's board of trustees, was the world's first professor of men's health and runs the Leeds Metropolitan’s Centre for Men’s Health Research. Last year he led a 36-strong international team of academics to produce The State of Men’s Health in Europe Report for the European Commission.
