Location: School of Physics and Astronomy, North Haugh, University of St Andrews
Starts at: 2pm.

The Social Dimensions of Health Institute (SDHI) was officially launched in 2003 as an interdisciplinary research platform between the Universities of St Andrews and Dundee. It has since brought together researchers, practitioners and service users to address the social dimensions of health, wellbeing and participation, in Scotland and beyond. Research at the intersection of social science and health has not only produced a better understanding of many issues in health and care delivery, but has also highlighted the distinct role for interdisciplinary investigation. While supporting extensive local working and knowledge exchange, SDHI has also been at the forefront of research capacity and capability building for many practitioners and postgraduate students, through funded training schemes, postgraduate retreats, grant writing support and individual mentoring.

You are invited to a showcase of activities, displays and visionary ideas, as SDHI look towards the future of interdisciplinary research in partnership.

For further information please contact Fred Comerford (fac1 @st-andrews.ac.uk) or Rosanne Bell (r.c.bell @dundee.ac.uk).
