Thursday, 2 September 2021 How a team of dedicated public health researchers and policy makers are turning science into policy and practice
Every scientist (well most of them!) dreams of having their research make a real difference in the world. So how do we actually get science to translate into action on the ground?
Dr Verity Cleland: Physical activity researcher, UTAS Dr Kim Jose: Public health researcher, physiotherapist and social scientist, UTAS Kate Garvey: Manager, Partnership Development and Acting CEO, Public Health Services Watch the livestream
Meme your science! Find out what happens when we challenge three scientists to explain their research with memes!
