THE chief executive of a Malton charity has been given a trio of honours.

Doctor Ava Easton, head of The Encephalitis Society, has completed a PhD with a doctoral thesis on the condition – inflammation of the brain – and graduated from the University of York on Friday.

She was also shortlisted for the Rising CEO Star category of the Charity Times Awards, and was made an Honorary Fellow of the University of Liverpool, after working closely with the research team at the Institute of Infection and Global Health there.

She said: “I work with a wonderful team at our HQ in Malton, and we have worked with our extended team of professors and doctors around the world on a number of ground breaking research studies in the hope of improving the quality of life for the hundreds of thousands of people who are affected by Encephalitis around the world each year.”
