Today we had the first meeting of our new Working Group

We had a very enjoyable first meeting. Thank you very much to everyone for volunteering their time to work with us, it was great to meet you and we are looking forward to working with you over the next 3 years, developing outreach and educational materials and sharing our research journey.

If you are interested in participating but couldn’t attend today, the recording of the meeting is available to watch and you are more than welcome to joi us at our next session in June. If you’d like to watch the video or join the Working Group, please email

Thank you.
