Monica Fletcher OBE

European Lung Foundation Chair, Monica Fletcher, is to be made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) from the Queen’s Birthday List, for her services to nursing and nurse education in the UK.

At the recent 50th Anniversary Info Day in Bristol Monica talked about the work of the Foundation and how it, along with the European Respiratory Society, is trying to educate medical professionals and patients about the many lung diseases.
