- 12th August 2020
- 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
- United Kingdom
Meet other ECHO members and discuss issues that matter to you while enjoying a cuppa from the comfort of your home.
In this session, our partners at King’s College London university are keen to hear from ECHO members on how to upskill young people to talk about their heart conditions through working with scientists.
For this special session, we especially welcome parents to please join us for discussions and help shape this vital work through your invaluable insights.
The Public Engagement team at King’s College London work to bring together researchers and scientists across Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences to engage with patients and public groups to increase the relevance, impact and benefits of King’s research.
They are keen to hear how to upskill young people to talk about their heart conditions through working with scientists (i.e., engineers, computer scientists, heart specialists, physicists) from discussions with ECHO parents.
ECHO members are encouraged to please join from the beginning of the session, as there will be a short presentation from the Public Engagement team at King’s, Alice Taylor-Gee and Melissa Bovis, to introduce their Centre and the session.
The bulk of this 60-90 min session will be for informal questions and discussions to allow for ECHO members to share their thoughts and ideas on the ideas brought forward by the team at King’s.
You are very welcome to leave before 90 mins if you cannot stay for the whole session.
