Design for Everybody – An interview with CIEHF President -Amanda Widdowson

Being the CIEHF president is no mean undertaking, its a three year commitment, being the face of the Institute and representing members at different meetings and other organisations. But this year has been even more challenging because of the Pandemic. Amanda Widdowson was president-elect when the pandemic started and took over at the 2020 AGM from Bob Bridger. In this interview, we talk about how she has found being president during the pandemic and the unique challenges that has brought. We also talk about her "presidents project", Design for Everybody where she is encouraging everyone to collect anthropometric data.
