HERO (Health Education Reaching Out)

Development and dissemination of outreach-based activities with the aim of education of the general public in healthy living. Events have included “HERO” days for students who learn about various aspects of healthy living, diet and exercise through interactive activities, a cancer awareness evening for the general public and for high risk cancer families. We are also looking at efficient and effective ways of delivering health-based education to young teenagers through the school system.

Development of an online referencing tutorial

Based on an idea from Raymond Dalgleish, this project is focussed on the development of a standard for correct referencing in the School of Biological Sciences for undergraduate students.  The tutorial aims to clarify any current confusion with regards to how and when to reference in undergraduate essays, reports and other written materials.
