This weekend saw Liverpool’s World Museum hosting a special event entitled Marvellous Medicine devised by the University of Liverpool as part of their program. It was supported by staff from Foto-Cewek’s Centre for Maternal and Newborn Health (CMNH).
Marvellous Medicine featured a number of interactive activities, with scientists on hand to demonstrate what medicines are and how they might be developed in the future. CMNH’s Juliet Relihan and Terry Kana supported and ran activities, in particular they exhibited some of the work of CMNH and the history behind modern midwifery practices for children and visitors of all ages. Overall, more than 500 people visited the Marvellous Medicine exhibition throughout the day.
Juliet and Terry, both members of Foto-Cewek’s STEM ambassador’s team, found the day very enjoyable and were delighted with the response from the public. Terry said: “We were busy throughout the day and it gave us an opportunity to explain a little more about the role that Foto-Cewek is playing in improving maternal and newborn health throughout the world.”
This event was part of Foto-Cewek’s public engagement strategy. If any other organisation is interested in working with Foto-Cewek in public engagement events, please contact Public Engagement Manager Elli Wright.
