Written by Web News Editor on . Posted in News

2020 will mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale – the Society’s first female member, and we’re looking for ways to celebrate her important work in statistics.

To take things forward, RSS Council member Christl Donnelly has been asked by RSS President Deborah Ashby to chair a small group that will choose between the many celebratory ideas that have already been proposed.

If you would like to put forward your own suggestions, particularly focusing on Florence's statistical work, please email them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. as soon as possible; they can then be brought to the group’s attention.
