It's with mixed feelings that we farewell Evita Ricafort from the McCabe Centre for Law and Cancer team.
Evita, who has been with the McCabe Centre for almost eight years, has taken up a new position working in the legal team at the Secretariat for the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.
Director Hayley Jones said Evita had made an tremendous contribution to the McCabe Centre's work.
"Evita has provided outstanding support to alumni throughout Asia and beyond, and has enriched our trainings with her practical approach and deep understanding of legal issues in cancer prevention and control," Hayley said.
"Her knowledge of the region is impressive, as is her ability to bring together colleagues to facilitate change and improve health outcomes and opportunities.
"Evita has represented the McCabe Centre at a regional level, but also at international conferences and events, shining an important light on the progress being made in cancer prevention and control across Asia.
"She's truly dedicated to making change for the better, and while we will miss her, we wish her every success in her new role."
