DASH held our first Participant Advisory Group on 26th February

posted on 07 March, 2013

A big thank you to all the participants who attended and made it a success.

The meeting began with a short presentation  by Seeromanie Harding, DASH project lead, on the history of DASH and our future plans. Afterwards there was some lively discussion around teenage eating habits, including the popularity of chicken shops, and the importance of getting enough exercise. We then discussed the best ways to communicate with participants and future plans to engage participants and local communities. It was great to hear participants' views and ideas - it's given us lots to work on. We still need participants so if you'd like to be part of the next meeting please get in touch - we'd love to hear from you.
