The recipient of this year’s Clare Person of the Year Award says she’s awestruck and humbled in equal measure.
Dr Susan Crawford, who’s a lecturer and researcher at UCC and a two time Fullbright Award winner, has been announced as the winner of the award, which will be presented at a ceremony in March.
She follows in the footsteps of HPV Vaccine campaigner, the late Laura Brennan and Mental Health Advocate John Burke.
Dr Susan Crawford provided autism training to people throughout Ireland, as she and her son Tomás, who has autism, completed a 2,500km run along the entire route of the Wild Atlantic Way.
She says she’s truly honoured to have this award bestowed upon her.
