May’s Public Health SOUP seminar had a theme of “CLAHRCs and BEARS” and featured two different speakers with their own perspectives on the benefits and challenges of collaborations between academics and local councils. The soup was Tomato and Basil.
Phil Jones gave a presentation about his PhD research. Phil is part of a multi-disciplinary postgraduate research network called BEARS – “Building Economies And Resilient Societies”. He is collaborating with Doncaster MBC to investigate health resilience.
Dr Annette Haywood, Theme Manager for the Public Health and Inequalities theme of the CLAHRC Yorkshire Humber then gave a presentation highlighting work with Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council as a CLAHRC partner and gave an example of consultancy work being undertaken on behalf of DMBC in collaboration with Sheffield Hallam University.
You can view the visuals from both presentations online.
The next SOUP seminar will be on the Monday 16th June from 12:30-1:30pm. Presentations will be by Louise Brereton (who will give an overview of the INTEGRATE-HTA project), and Joe Clark (topic TBC).
