CHSS at U3A/University of Kent Research Showcase
26 May 2017
CHSS staff and PhD students were among the many attendees of the U3A/University of Kent Research Showcase on 23 May in the Gulbenkian Foyer. More than a hundred members of the Canterbury and District branch of the University of the Third Age were welcomed, to share research projects, posters and performances, and find out about areas for future partnerships.
There was a strong contingent of postgraduates presenting their work in an accessible format, and input from academic staff from across many disciplines. The event showcased a wide range of research and there were performances from the U3A choir.
CHSS Public Engagement Officer Dr Amanda Bates chaired a session on Health and Memories and Dr Ferhana Hashem presented on Physiotherapy, Haemophilia and Child Health. Our PhD students Vanessa Abrahamson, Rowena Bicknall and Aida Malovic were among those displaying research posters.
The event was followed by a wine reception with the signing of a memorandum of understanding.
