Evidently Advent Day 8: best health evidence wrapped up for the festive season!

Christmas wishes…

Some of you (I hope many) will have read 9 year old Tess Griffin’s wonderful blog on Evidently Cochrane, telling us what it’s like for her being at school and managing cystic fibrosis (CF). Here she is, with Mum Ellie, sister Erin and brother Zac, who also has CF.


You can find out about the Cochrane Cystic Fibrosis and Genetic Disorders Group here. In her blog, Tess told us about the fantastic fundraising she did with her class for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and you can visit their website here and follow @cftrust on Twitter.

Thank you Ellie, Tess, Erin and Zac for making this film. We wish you, and not forgetting Dad Luke, a happy and healthy Christmas, with some lovely family time (and maybe a Barbie for Erin!)

Evidently Cochrane has been shortlisted as one of the top 10 health organization blogs in the UK Blog Awards 2015! Do explore the site – we hope there are blogs here to interest everyone. You can also follow us – and talk to us – on Twitter @ukcochranecentr and @SarahChapman30
