Irish Platform for Patient Organisations, Science & Industry

Science Week 2023 is approaching (November 14th-18th).  This year’s theme is all about asking people to consider ‘what it means to be human’ in today’s world and how the decisions we make today will impact humans of the future.

As part of Science Week and our Public Education Programme in Genomics, IPPOSI is now recruiting 40 members of three different public communities who may be interested in the topic of Genomics.

IPPOSI has organised three separate in-person workshops that aim to build the capacity of members of three carefully selected communities by providing educational information and an open space for dialogue about the relationship between genomics, health and their day-to-day lives.

IPPOSI is seeking to recruit members of the following communities to attend the November workshops:

  • The GAA membership – Monday, 13 November
  • Men aged 60+ – Thursday, 16 November
  • Special Needs Assistants, Monday, 20 November

The first workshop, ‘Is the GAA in our DNA?’ will take place on Monday 13 November (7-9 pm) at the Pillo Hotel, Ashbourne, Co. Meath.

The workshop for men aged 60+, ‘What do Racehorses and Medicine Have in Common?’, will take place on Thursday 16 November (10:30 am-12:30 pm) at the Annebrook House Hotel, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath.

The final workshop, ‘Attention Special Needs Assistants’, will take place on Monday 20 November (7-9 pm) at the Maldron Hotel, Tallaght, Co. Dublin.

Additional Details:

  • Registration opens: Thursday 12th October 2023
  • Registration closes: 9 pm on Thursday 9th November 2023
  • The workshops are free to attend, but registration is mandatory.
  • Spaces are limited in each workshop.
If you and/or someone you know is a member of any of the three communities and wishes to register their interest, please do so here.
