Posted on 4 December 2017 (Permalink)

Students from Keele University had the rare opportunity to rub shoulders with leading researchers at a leading conference, presenting their work with WMAHSN on children's health.

The medical students had posters of their work with the WMAHSN Long Term Conditions Network accepted by the Society for Academic Primary Care North conference, held in Kendal on 23 - 24 November. Badged as the premier event for primary care researchers and educationalists in the north of England, the students gave two two-minute presentations on the posters at the event, with a minute of questions following. 

Dr Ruth Chambers, Clinical Chair of Stoke-on-Trent Clinical Commissioning Group and lead for the WMAHSN's Long Term Conditions Network, said: "It is unusual for medical students to be on equal par with academics and clinicians, and it was an excellent opportunity to promote WMAHSN LTC Network programmes."
