In memory of Eric Landau

Everyone involved with Voice North was so sad to learn that Eric Landau has died. Eric was one of the very first members of Voice North and was actively involved in scores of projects, regularly attending events and workshops over 10 years. He was always enthusiastic and positive, and made an immense contribution  and difference to the work that he took part in, from helping to identify research topics, membership of advisory and steering groups, and in developing new products. He was particularly keen to work on projects which looked at arthritis and nutrition and was involved in Hospital Foodie with Professor Paula Moynihan, and a member of the Health Protection Research Unit Steering Group.     

Eric will be very much missed by all his friends at Voice North. We are hugely appreciative that he was involved and know he thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many friends and colleagues through his involvement with us and how much he valued the opportunties to exchange ideas and insights and how much we valued him. 

Dear VOICE member,

We hope you're all well - and managing with the current ever-developing situation regarding COVID-19.

As we mentioned in our email last week, the VOICE team is working to deliver a programme of online activities starting next week, so that we can continue to connect and learn together. If you would like to play a role in shaping these activities, you can do so by taking part in the opportunity listed below.

We realise that it’s a very concerning time for everyone at the moment, and we would really like to check in weekly on how our members are doing. Through this, and along with the programme of online activities, we hope to get a better understanding of the challenges our community is facing, but also we can together understand more about the many positive solutions and innovations that are being adopted during this difficult time.

We would really appreciate it if you could spare a minute to respond by clicking here or the image below. All of your answers will be anonymised, and may form the basis of future reports which we will of course share with you.

Feel free to keep in touch any time - the whole team is online - by sending us an email at hello@voice-global.org.

Best wishes,

VOICE Head Office
