The RSI Monthly Awareness Project (M.A.P) is a forum for research students in RSI to showcase the amazing research they are doing to community stakeholders as well as academic audiences. We coordinate themed topics for each speaking event, every few months - in honour of the awareness day or month for a given disease or health issue.
Each event incorporates both student and faculty presentations and interactive discussion around the health topics of concern, and the related research developments that are relevant to community stakeholders. Participating in these events is a great way to contribute to knowledge translation, practice presentation skills, make community contacts, and gain greater exposure for your project and yourself, as a developing researcher.
