DASH feasibility study fieldwork ends with over 650 seen

posted on 03 April, 2014

DASH feasibility study fieldwork closed on Monday the 31st March 2014. The response of participants has been fantastic - 666 have been seen in total.

666 may seem an unlucky number for some, but for the DASH feasibility study 666 represents a great success. We have seen almost 100 participants from all the major ethnic groups in the DASH study, including White British, Black Caribbean, Black African, Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi, plus lots of other participants reflecting the great diversity of young people in London. We now start the hard work of analysing the rich data which we have gathered thanks to all those who took part. Watch this space for updates and publications as we gain new insights into the health of young Londoners.
