Community Participation in Research: from paradigms to practice

AHP UEAThe School of Allied Health Professions (AHP) at the University of East Anglia (UEA) is taking a leading role in highlighting the importance of understanding participation for building healthy lives.

We are fortunate to be able to offer an exciting programme of interdisciplinary local and national events in dialogue with the eminent Fulbright Senior Scholar David Horton Smith, as Visiting Professor of Altruis-tics and Community Engagement in the School of Allied Health Professions. This is especially relevant in the year when UEA celebrates its 50th Anniversary and contribution to the wider community.

These events have emerged through and aim to strengthen partnerships involving the following organisations: Association for Research in the Voluntary and Community Sector (ARVAC), Norwich Business School (NBS) at UEA, the Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences Enterprise (FMHE) at UEA, UEA Community-University Engagement (CUE), and the Norfolk and Suffolk Dementia Alliance. Full details of the events, including information about follow-up masterclasses, and topic discussions, can be found at www.uea.ac.uk/ahp/fulbright-programme2013.
