A group of KEHS Upper Sixths aspiring to work in healthcare professions have written, edited and designed a journal linked to their chosen career paths, and are using its distribution to raise money for charity.
The KEHS Healthcare Journal 2023 features a wide range of articles on the world of dentistry, the healthcare system, the future of medicine, the pharmaceutical industry and veterinary medicine.
The team behind the journal is encouraging those who read the publication to make a donation to the charity Kissing it Better, which has previously been supported by other pupils at KEHS.
Kissing it Better is a healthcare charity and training provider that hopes to end the isolation of old age by “bringing generations together”. The charity started in 2009 and, since then, has aimed to have a positive impact on older, vulnerable people in hospitals, care homes and the wider community. Donations to Kissing it Better help it to: fund its teaching programme; support student volunteering placements; work as advocates for enhancing patient experience; and research the impact of creative thoughtfulness on the recovery times of older people in healthcare.
You can access the pupils’ journal at: KEHS Healthcare Journal 2023.
