Professor Chris Code wins award for services to aphasia

At the 14th International Aphasia Rehabilitation Conference, recently held in Canada, the School's popular Honorary Professor Chris Code became the 5th holder of the prestigious Robin Tavistock Award for services to aphasia.

This is an annual award from the Tavistock Trust for Aphasia, which was started by the Duchess of Bedford in memory of Robin Tavistock, late Duke of Bedford, who had aphasia. 

The citation reads, in part, "Chris Code has made an exceptional contribution in raising the profile, awareness and understanding of aphasia. Professor Code has made a galvanizing impact on the field: as a savant, a motivator and an impresario of trends which have resulted in several significant developments in the field".
