Inaugural 'DARE' event held at UEA Inaugural 'DARE' event held at UEA

On 23 November 2016, Professor Val Pomeroy and Professor Tom Shakespeare hosted the inaugural Disability and Rehabilitation Exchange at UEA. 

Researchers from the Schools of Health Sciences, Social Work and the Medical School shared their research in the fields of Disability and Rehabilitation with a wider audience including contributions from service users who had lived experience of rehabilitation. 

The event aimed to foster connections amongst researchers with a view to enhancing their research and thereby the lives of people they are working for.
