The aim of this project was to develop a comprehensive and accessible outreach and public engagement e-repository. The e-repository aims to compile the public engagement and outreach activities as well as provide information on resources developed and/or offered by staff and students of the Medical School.

On this platform, you can find description of activities and their intended audiences, resources, staff or students involved, and curating of accessibility of online resources for outreach. We are hopeful that this platform will facilitate collaboration within and beyond the Medical School.
