DIARY: Conference figures are almost miraculous

Those seeking PR miracles need look no further than this month’s meeting of the Health and Medical Public Relations Association.

Those seeking PR miracles need look no further than this month’s meeting

of the Health and Medical Public Relations Association.



In the less than spiritual confines of the London Press Club, journalist

Michael Moriarty will discuss miracles and medicine and give an ‘eye-

witness account of a 300-person pilgrimage to Lourdes’.



HAMPRA chairman Philip Paul admits the timing owes no small debt to the

current political and media absorption with morality.



‘I’ve had a much bigger response than I expected,’ says Paul. ‘Most of

our members are orthodox medical people, such as senior PR

representatives of major multi-national pharmaceutical companies. Not

the sort of people one would think would be interested in an exercise

like Lourdes.’



Who knows, it could be their salvation.
