52 weeks in public health research, part 24

Posted by Catt Turney

This week I was tweeter-in-residence for two events - a symposium on health promotion in schools (#SchlHealth) and the launch of the School Health Research Network (#SHRN14). I was busy being proud of myself for keeping to the right account and hashtag, when I noticed that I'd tweeted this photo of our Co-Director upside-down. I deleted, rotated it and tweeted again - still upside-down. Moral of the story: Twitter is four-dimensional, or this photo just really wants to be upside-down. It seemed a shame to deny it that chance, so here it is.

The school health symposium meant I got to have a day of working at home at my grandma's in London. Cue amazing vintage healthy-eating books - full of mostly quite sensible advice, interspersed with the odd bit of quackery and some amazingly 70s recipes.

I've been enjoying Jenni Remnant's animal photos on the Fuse blog over the last few weeks, so wanted to try and contribute something appropriately cute from my walk home. Unfortunately all I could find were these two scraggy seagulls trying to eat each other.


Just to remind you:

Each Thursday of 2014 we’ll try and post around four pictures on the Fuse blog that capture our weeks in public health research, from the awe-inspiring to the everyday and mundane. Given that more of the latter than the former exists in my life, I foresee problems compiling 208 images worth posting on my own. So this is going to have to be a group project. Send me an image (or images) with a sentence or two describing what aspect of your week in public health research they sum up and I’ll post them as soon as I can. You don’t have to send four together – we can mix and match images from different people in the same week.

Normal rules apply: images you made yourself are best; if you use someone else’s image please check you’re allowed to first; if anyone’s identifiable in an image, make sure they’re happy for it to be posted; nothing rude; nothing that breaks research confidentiality etc.
