A Harpenden man was joined by experts at the first ever meeting of a new body set up to improve the quality of life for people living with lymphoma.

Stephen Scowcroft represented charity Lymphoma Action in Brussels at the European Lymphoma Community Advisory Board (CAB) earlier this month.

Stephen, head of business development at Lymphoma Action, said: “The board exists for specific, particularly rare, health conditions and are an important part of empowering the people who live with those conditions to influence developments in research, treatment and care.

“CABs can help ensure that governments, pharmaceutical companies and regulatory authorities are responding to and meeting the evolving needs of people with the condition in question. I’m so pleased we now have a European CAB for lymphoma – and it’s a huge privilege to be one of the members representing the 125,000 people currently living with lymphoma in the UK.”
