ECC 2016 - first delegate!

ECC 2016 Raffle winner at the ASM 2015

Those who booked for the BAC ASM 2015 in Liverpool not only registered for a great day of lectures, they also had the opportunity to win a free place at the ECC 2016!

And our lucky winner was BAC member Katharine Ferry, pictured here with the President of the BAC Mr Allan Wilson FIBMS

Katherine said:

"This year, I have had the pleasure of attending the BAC ASM. It had been a while since I last attended conference, and my happy experiences then were returned at Liverpool.
The programme was varied, covering everything from the Non gynae Diploma to HPV primary screening to Andrology, the latter providing many a knowing chuckle. HPV testing via the postal service was an interesting concept for reaching women who were perhaps unable to access screening in the usual way. Other topics included the impact of HPV primary screening on colposcopy and cognitive bias in cytology. All in all it was a thought provoking conference.
As the meeting drew to a close, the draw was made for the ECC pass. We all sat waiting for the announcement with great anticipation, and no one was more surprised than I to hear my name.
Everyone was generous in their congratulations. Having been involved with cytology for nearly 30 years, this will be the pinnacle of my professional life, and I am looking forward to October and the ECC immensely
