Dame Betty Boothroyd
We are deeply saddened by the loss of Baroness Boothroyd who was a Patron of TwinsUK. We will always remember her support and patronage.
We had an interview with her in 2013, where she answered questions about which areas of research were closest to her heart, what she enjoyed most about her “twin visit”, the way her childhood influenced her and her top tips for healthy ageing.
