Win a travel bursary for the XXVII ESCRS Congress in Barcelona

The John Henahan Prize for 2009 was launched at the 13th ESCRS Winter Meeting in Rome. John was the visionary editor and guiding light of EuroTimes from 1996 to 2001 and his work has inspired a generation of young doctors and journalists, many of whom continue to work for EuroTimes.
Ophthalmologists who are members of the ESCRS and who are under 40 years of age are eligible to apply for the prize. Entrants are invited to write a 1,000-word article on the theme My Best Patient; My Worst Patient. The closing date for entries is Friday June 26, 2009.
Dr Emanuel Rosen, chairman ESCRS Publications Committee, Dr Jose Guell, medical editor, EuroTimes, Mr Sean Henahan, editor, EuroTimes, Robert Henahan, contributing editor, EuroTimes and Paul McGinn, editor, EuroTimes will judge the entries.
The winning entrant will receive a travel bursary worth E1, 000 to attend the XXVII ESCRS Congress in Barcelona, 2009 in September and the winner will be presented with a special trophy at the Young Ophthalmologists Programme in Barcelona. We will publish the winning entry in the October edition of EuroTimes.
Entries, which must be accompanied by an ESCRS membership number, should be sent to Colin Kerr, Executive Editor, and EuroTimes at colin.kerr@escrs.org. The decision of the judges is final and no correspondence will be considered once they have announced their decision.
