Cervical Check campaigner and WIT employee Vicky Phelan is to be presented with an honourary Fellowship at the college as conferring ceremonies begin on October 31.
The WIT Honorary Fellowship is awarded to individuals who have demonstrated distinction in a field of human endeavour to such an extent as to provide motivation and inspiration to the Institute community.
WIT President, Prof Willie Donnelly stated: “Vicky, through her actions, has made a transformational contribution to women's health in Ireland. Her courage, her desire for the truth and her determination represent values that are fundamental to society at large; core principles which have been truly inspirational for all of us in WIT."
"As a community, it is very fitting that we award Vicky with the highest honour this Institute can afford in recognition of her strength, her leadership and her fighting spirit, he added.
