Awards mark women who have inspired those around them
Wimbledon-based Professor Dr Geeta Nargund has been recognised for her achievements at the annual Inspiration Awards for Women event, where she was honoured as one of 2015’s most ‘Inspirational Women’.
The Inspiration Awards for Women celebrated the achievements of remarkable women who have inspired those around them through their work and actions. The event also raises money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer and previous winners include Adele, Victoria Beckham, Jessica Ennis and Doreen Lawrence.
Dr Nargund was recognised for her work to advance the development of safer methods of IVF and her campaign to increase accessibility to fertility treatments and improve overall fertility education throughout the UK.
The recognition follows a clutch of national awards for Dr Nargund, including her selection at the Women of the Year Lunch 2015, the RBS Chairman’s award at the Asian Woman of Achievement in 2014 and Red Magazine’s Woman of the year Award for Charity & Community work in 2013.
As Medical Director of CREATE Fertility IVF clinics, first established in Wimbledon over a decade ago, and Senior Consultant at St George’s hospital, Dr Nargund says she’s proud to serve the local community.
She said: “Winning this award with such a fantastic group of women is an incredible honour. I hope that this prestigious award will further highlight both myself and my team’s work in improving the fertility prospects of women in the UK and around the world. It is a testament to those who have helped, supported and inspired me over the years that I am able to undertake the work I do in seeking to improve women’s lives by making fertility treatments safer, more affordable and accessible for all.”
Create Fertility Wimbledon is a local IVF provider for both NHS and private patients. Dr Nargund also runs two national Women’s Health charities, Create Health Foundation and ISMAAR, from Wimbledon.
