Health and wellbeing
Through our community-focused health research, we listen to, collaborate with and support local residents.
We believe that health research should be carried out ‘by’ or ‘with’ and not ‘to’ the public and patients, so that we can all work together to improve people’s health at a local and wider level.
There are several ways in which you can make a difference.
Programmes and projects
Let’s talk about tuberculosis
Past project: Local residents were instrumental in raising awareness of latent tuberculosis. They worked with Imperial researchers to translate an animated film on the topic, using their diverse linguistic talents. The film is now being shown in medical centres around the country.
