Public engagement at the IEU

The MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit actively works with public audiences, policymakers and industry partners to share our research. We aim to encourage discussion and debate around health through developing a varied and exciting programme of engagement activities which see us partnering with UK wide science festivals, chairing public discussions, facilitating community initiatives and engaging with local schools. Highlights of these can be seen below. Public-facing activities are publicised and celebrated on our news page and Twitter.
