Annie Bosch Memorial Prize

Annie Bosch Memorial PrizeThis award has been founded in memory of Annie Bosch (1946-2002), previously, secretary and treasurer of the European Association for Cancer Education 1998-2001.


Annie originally trained as a teacher, and then moved into health care and trained as a nurse. Although she remained in healthcare, she never lost her enthusiasm for, and involvement in education. Annie worked for the Comprehensive Cancer Centre for the East Netherlands IKO where she became director for Nurse Education and training.


She pioneered several initiatives in education, supported teams for palliative care, and multimedia interactive education packages. Annie also had a keen interest in palliative care and was a founder member of the International Palliative Nursing Network (IPNN).


This award has been funded by her husband Henk Schok to enable her legacy of supporting colleagues as they strive to improve not only their care but also their education and dissemination skills.

The Jagiellonian Univeristy as one of the oldest institutions of higher education, second to the University of Prague hosted Nicolas Copernicus an John Paul II as the students.


Krakow has been the place of coexistnce of two important cultures: Christial and Jewish and you can find its signs at Kazimierz, filled not only with the gems of Judaica – synagogues, museums but also atmospheric restaurants, artistic pubs and taverns filled with live music.
