With the Olympic torch traveling across the UK, and the opening ceremony due later this month, the next #PHTwitJC on will discuss an olympic themed research paper! Thank you to those who have provided suggestions – we’ve narrowed it down to 4 papers exploring different public health aspects of the games.
You will find the following in this blog post:
- web-links to these open access papers (incase you would like to read the abstracts prior to voting)
- voting poll 1: which Olympic themed paper would you prefer?
- voting poll 2: which weekday evening would you prefer to have #PHTwitJC on?
The voting poll will close on Sunday 15th July and the next #PHTwitJC will take place on Sunday 22nd July at 8pm
