Competencies:

If you have a self-starter attitude, a high level of enthusiasm and an outgoing predisposition, we would love to have you as a volunteer.

Background to Bella Moss Foundation

The Bella Moss Foundation is a charity which promotes prudent antimicrobial use and hygiene practices in the field of human and veterinary medicine. The Foundation works in an advisory capacity educating and supporting pet carers, veterinary and medical professionals on the prevention and treatment of resistant bacteria. The Foundation was set up in 2005 by Jill Moss, a high profile broadcasting journalist and actress, following the death of her dog Bella, from a badly managed MRSA infection. With Jill at the helm, the Foundation has developed into an international champion of best practice on the prudent use of antimicrobials, providing the crucial link between patients and veterinary clients to world class resources and clinical advice through leading experts in the field.

The One Health Conference (13th October 2014) will be an opportunity for some vet/nurse students to volunteers as stewards (note www.onehealthbmf.com will be live early March for bookings)
