The Jos Millar Shield
Jos Millar started his career in audiology at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast. He had an interest in sound and radio and when an opportunity within audiology came along he moved to this field and went to Manchester to complete his training. He was always fond of paediatric audiology so returned to the Royal Belfast Hospital for sick children. Later in his career he embarked on a new challenge to set up a paediatric service in his home town of Ballymena.
With his long standing dedication to audiology, it was only fitting for an award to be named in his honour. The Jos Millar Shield is a long standing award given each year for the best contribution to a BAA publication. The recipient is chosen from all articles printed in thr previous year's magazine and newsletter and is chosen by the publicity and communications committee.
