Dissemination

 

During the last four years a wide range of dissemination activities have been carried by InterAct partners across the different countries. These have included targeted activities for specialist audiences, such as researchers, clinicians and media, as well as for the general public.

 

  • In 2007 press release was sent to national media in the UK. The coordinator, Nick Wareham, gave an interview on the radio (BBC Cambridgeshire) about the InterAct project and diabetes as a public health problem in general.
  • Project leaflets and posters have been printed and copies distributed to every partner.
