Welcome to this issue of EPINews. Another summer has come and gone and colleagues here in the Department are settling back into their routines after another eventful season.
Milan was the hotspot this year as three of our PhD scholars visited the Italian city to present their research. Ms Sarah Fitzgerald travelled in June to present her work on absenteeism in the workplace at the International Health Economics Association Congress while Ms Marsha Treacy and Ms Shelly Chakraborty flew in last week to present at the 8th European Public Health Conference. Since the last issue the Society for Social Medicine has also held their Annual Scientific Meeting in Dublin and the Department was well represented at this major international meeting with 8 oral and 6 poster presentations and a workshop led by HRB Centre for health and Diet Research. As always, I would encourage you to circulate EPINews among your colleagues and direct any queries or comments to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ms. Emily Kelleher
