Raising awareness of respiratory research

Lesley and Denise

Respiratory research nurses Lesley Young and Denise Rodger from the respiratory research team at Clinical Research Centre (CRC), Ninewells Hospital, decided to try something new to raise awareness.

Lesley and Denise created a pop-up event at Asda Milton of Craigie to speak with customers about COPD, bronchiectasis and asthma, and to share information about some of the studies taking place at the CRC.

Denise said, “We visited Asda with a pop up stand for an afternoon and not only raised awareness, but increased our recruitment, in a fun and informal way.

“This proved very popular with many customers enquiring and leaving their details in order to gain more information regarding respiratory research. We also recruited for Epic, one of our studies. It was such a worthwhile event we plan to do again in the future.”
