Public Engagement in Research

September 19, 2023

On Saturday the 16th of September Dr Hall attended a public engagement in research event for the local Bangladeshi community in North London.

Dr Hall spoke to attendees about whether they would like any (more) children and depending on what they said provided information on the range of contraception available, or how to plan and prepare for pregnancy. Visitors were able to handle different types of contraception and use models to explore how an implant feels when it is in someone’s arm, and where a coil or diaphragm go. Information was provided in Bengali, including a new translation of our ‘Thinking of having a baby?’ information sheet.

It was a really well-attended event, with women also about to learn about cervical screening, gynaecological cancer and preterm birth. These were the topics that local people had asked to be covered at this event, and Dr Hall and the P3 Study were happy to be able to share information and research findings, helping people understand the value of research, as well as how they can get involved in it, either as participants or as a career!
