Coming up in Co-production – October 2019
This blog shares ways you can get involved with the UCL Centre for Co-production in Health Research, and a range of other resources and co-production events.
We love learning more about co-production from the resources and experiences so many of you share! Each month, we’ll post a blog like this where we’ll pass on ways to get involved in and learn about co-production and related topics.

Email Susan email@example.com if you’re curious about any of these opportunities.
- On Thursday 31 October 13:30-1630, come help us work on our learning and development support for co-producers (West London location). If this would be your first time joining in, here’s what a co-creation session is like!
