The Society is committed to supporting its members to engage non-specialist audiences with hormones and the impact of endocrinology. Activities should aim to foster discussion and could include:
- a public or school discussion or workshop focusing on an aspect of endocrinology
- delivering hands-on activities at a festival
- developing targeted online/video/audio/print resources for a specific audience
Public Engagement Grants are up to £1,000 and open to members of the society and public engagement professionals.
Deadline is noon 26 September.
