Two new Ambassadors for Wellbeing of Women

Editor-in-Chief Rosie Nixon and GP Dr Nighat Arif attended their first event as Ambassadors for the charity this week


We are excited to announce that women’s health champions, Rosie Nixon and Dr Nighat Arif, have been appointed as Ambassadors for Wellbeing of Women.

On Tuesday 17 May, Rosie and Nighat attended their first official event as Ambassadors at a literary lunch to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubliee at Fortnum and Mason, in aid of Wellbeing of Women. Rosie interviewed the columnist and former royal correspondent Robert Hardman about the publication of his new book Queen of Our Times: The Life of Elizabeth II.

Rosie is Editor in Chief of Hello! Magazine, which has partnered with the charity on its Menopause Workplace Pledge. The campaign is raising awareness of menopause and improving support for women in the workplace.

Speaking about her appointment as an Ambassador for the charity, Rosie said: “I am honoured to have been made an Ambassador for Wellbeing of Women, an incredible health charity that is making improvements for women through its research, education and advocacy work.

“It has been a privilege to partner with them on the hugely successful Menopause Workplace Pledge, which is making a difference for women in the workplace.”

Nighat is an NHS GP with an interest in women’s health, specifically improving women’s healthcare in Black and Asian ethnic minority communities. She is also the resident GP on BBC Breakfast and ITV’s This Morning, as well as presenter of The Sunday Breakfast Show on BBC Three Counties Radio.

Nighat said: “It is a pleasure to be an Ambassador for Wellbeing of Women, supporting their crucial work in improving and saving the lives of women, girls and babies. I am so excited to join the team and support them in my capacity as an NHS GP and advocate for women’s health.”

Janet Lindsay, Wellbeing of Women CEO, added: “We are so grateful to Rosie and Nighat for joining Wellbeing of Women as Ambassadors. As leaders in their respective fields, their contribution to our charitable activities will be invaluable, and I cannot wait to collaborate with them both on future projects.”

Nighat and Rosie join a number of high-profile ambassadors for the charity, including Baroness Karren Brady CBE, Fiona Bruce, and Carol Vorderman MBE.
