As anybody who had a big event in the calendar for 2020 knows, the COVID-19 pandemic has transformed celebrations with friends into digital-only affairs. Last year, HIS was due to celebrate the 40th anniversary of both HIS and of our official journal, the Journal of Hospital Infection, with physical events designed to honour the work members have put into HIS conferences, workshops, publications, educational programmes and more over the years.
Plans to meet in person and toast the achievements of HIS members past and present have had to be largely put on hold – but we have not wasted our hours in lockdown!
To give a fuller sense of the Society’s development, we are launching the Our HIStory campaign. We want to hear members’ stories – which HIS events you attended, how HIS helped you in your careers, who you met along the way, where life has led you since and why the Society means something to you.
How you can get involved
Until 1 June 2021, if you have a story or image you would like to share, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or use #OurHIStory on Twitter to tag photos and share memories.
We will gather our crowdsourced contributions for inclusion in the second edition of Healthcare Infection Society: Forty Years and Counting. The second edition will printed during 2022, in time for our rescheduled special celebration event in May 2022.
The book will be archived for posterity in both the Wellcome Library and at the HIS Newsom Library at our new HQ, Montagu House.
