Academic posters

We have invited the submission of academic posters for the first time. These are available online andvwere displayed at the face-to-face day. Many thanks to those who took the time to submit/display a poster; excellent feedback was received at the face to face day.

Dr Justin Burdon judged the posters and awarded a certificate for the best poster to Dr Lewis Potter & Dr Chris Jefferies.

Randomised Coffee Trials

Randomised Coffee Trials (RCTs) are an optional opportunity for you to network with one or two other people. Please note these are organised by you and scheduled at your own convenience via whatever method you prefer. If you would like to take part, you need to sign up here by 19th February 2023. You will then be randomly split into groups of one or two and your group will be emailed so that you can liaise with each other to schedule your coffee time.

 

Pound for Pound Challenge

In keeping with a healthy body equals a healthy mind, we would like to encourage everyone to take active breaks. Last year we successfully logged over 400 miles of activity. This year we would like to challenge you similarly to Pound the pavement / pool - and log those miles. In recognition of the cost of living crisis and our invitational speaker on Food Poverty, our other challenge is to donate money to The Trussell Trust which helps to provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty. Will our pounding the earth match our Pounds donated? This is the challenge of 2023! If you would like to get involved, please do so using the links below by 6th April 2023. We will feedback the outcome after this time.

The link to log your miles is here: Pound for Pound Challenge

The link to make a donation to The Trussell Trust is: JustGiving Pound for Pound Challenge
