From Lorraine McSweeney: It was a proud and surreal moment to see my PhD thesis join eminent academics’ work on the Fuse Director's bookshelf of fame at Newcastle University!
From Amelia Lake and Emily Henderson: Emily has fashioned a temporary standing desk so we, at Durham University's centre for public policy & health, can introduce a bit more activity into our working life!
From Amelia Lake: Halloween a time of... excessive sugar intake? What happened to carving turnips, eating satsumas and the best treat (well in the Lake household circa 1985) a big box of pomegranates!
From Peter Van Der Graaf: Poster presentations at the 1st International Conference on Realist Approaches to Evaluation and Synthesis with two posters from Fuse's Monique Lhussier (see below). A surprising amount of papers and presentations on public health including a keynote address by Professor Mike Kelly from NICE. Is Fuse missing a trick?
A reminder from the Fuse blog group:
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 most of our lives, we foresee problems compiling 208 images worth posting on our own. So this is going to have to be a group project. Send an image (or images) with a sentence or two describing what aspect of your week in public health research they sum up and we’ll post them as soon as we 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.
