Maxine Whitton awarded Member of the Order of the British Empire

Mrs. Maxine Eloise WHITTON, ESPCR supporting member and Patron of the Vitiligo Society, has been recently awarded as Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE), “for the advancement of knowledge and research into Vitiligo”. The ESPCR President, Prof. Lionel Larue, said: “Maxine Whitton from ESPCR just became a Member of the Order of the British Empire (a major honour like the legion d’honneur for the French), for her campaigning on behalf of vitiligo patients and research.  She has a very important role in the Society and for ESPCR. She links very nicely and efficiently the worlds of the scientist, the medic and the patient. I do hope that she will continue her amazing work. Congratulations Maxine. Lionel Larue“.
