DASH findings shared with visitors to the London Science Museum

posted on 20 June, 2013

As part of this year's celebrations for the MRC centenary DASH researchers were joined by participants to share our findings with museum visitors in the Life Game, a festival of MRC research

On 15-16 June DASH was part of a weeekend festival called the Life Game at London Science Museum alongside 8 other MRC research units from London. With the help of performers from non zero one DASH researchers and participants interacted with children and families to share our message that diversity in everyday social life promotes resilience (good health in spite of adversity) for London's young people. We also gave a short talk about the remarkable diversity represented in the DASH cohort and two participants spoke about what it was like to take part in the study and the things that had helped them growing up in London such as friends, family and values. A big thank you to those participants and their families who came along.
