|Information about general talks|
Many of these general talks explain how the EPIC study has evolved and ends with a few of the main results to come out of the study so far. The audiences are made up of local people, some of whom may have been taking part in the study as participants, some who may have links with the study via the medical profession such as GPs and Practice Managers, and others who may not have heard of EPIC beforehand and who leave with a wider understanding of the research being carried out.

Adults and children of all ages
EPIC repeated the stall used at the Cambridge Science Festival in March 2010 to bring our research to a Norwich audience. Visitors were encouraged to compete in 'The great gut race'. Visitors could also test their food knowledge, strength and see how quickly they could squeeze a fruit through the life-size model of a human gut in the EPIC/CNC Challenge 2010!
|Norfolk Arthritis Register (NOAR) Symposium|
EPIC will be hosting an information stand at the symposium.
|Cambridge Science Festival 2010|

|Patient and Public Involvement in Research (PPIRes)|
PPIRes is a volunteer panel of lay members from a wide range of backgrounds who are trained in the basics of research and are willing to give their time to assist researchers in gaining a users perspective on their work. The panel is hosted by Norfolk Primary Care Trust on behalf of the East Norfolk & Waveney Research Consortium.
Panel members could be involved in reading and amending materials intended for the public such as information sheets and consent forms, advising on study design and questionnaires, debating ethical and governance issues, promoting lay interpretation and dissemination of information.
Shabina Hayat, Nichola Dalzell and Mark Francis (EPIC Research Nurse) were in attendance at this event. A talk was given covering the EPIC activities to date and some of the results to come out of the study so far. There was also the opportunity for panel members to ask questions surrounding our activities. We were also able to gain some feedback from panel members regarding our future public involvement plans.
|Dementia and Palliative Care Conference, Norwich|
Poster presentation and stall on cognitive and ageing research activities dementia patients, carers, medical professionals and commercial company representatives.
A short video of the 3rd Health Check appointment was compiled for this and projected in order to show people a little of what is involved.
|Dementia Focus Group, Norwich|
Presentation on EPIC-Norfolk research into cognition, audience of dementia patients, carers and professionals.
|Cambridge Town, Gown and Country Show|
Fun activities for adults and children of all ages.
EPIC held a 'strongman' style grip strength activity, highlighting the importance of physical function and maintaining it in later life. Well-known 'strong' characters King-Kong, Princes Leia and Superwoman helped people to take part. The aim was to show people that science can be fun and that physical activity is important.
|Cambridge Science Festival 2009|
EPIC held a stall in the Biology Zone encouraging children and young people to take part in activities relating to the current health check. These focused on cognition and physical performance and healthy ageing.
Interactive activities were particularly popular, including ‘test your memory’ using CANTAB and ‘test your strength’ using grip strength.
Stickers and pencils were given out with the EPIC website as well as leaflets with key findings and general information about the study.
