Welcome to the Summer edition of the SCPHRP magazine, our second edition of 2017
We have had a busy 2017 so far at SCPHRP, we’ve said hello to a whole load of new people and said goodbye to a few. In this edition of the magazine we are sharing updates on some of the exciting projects we’ve been working on including our Citizen Science project, the 20mph Research Study, an Obesity Landscape project, and our Stand Up for Health project (which comes with a creative video from film-maker Felix Adamson). Hope you enjoy.
We would appreciate any feedback you have on what you like or what we could improve. If you have any, please send it to Sam at email@example.com. Thanks
