PR team scoops national award05 Nov 2008, PR 234/08
The King’s PR Team won a national Public Sector Campaign award at the PRCA (Public Relations Consultants Association) awards ceremony held at the London Marriot Hotel on 4 November.
The event was attended by more than 500 members of the public relations industry and the award reflected the work the team has done to promote scientific and medical research and teaching at the College, which has embraced such areas as levels of paranoia in the general public, the effect of exercise on longevity, stem cell research, gene links to baldness and the extended medical degree programme.
