King's Collaborative Scheme for Early Career Researchers showcase, Creative Impacts, highlights research projects
More than 150 people attended the launch of the King's Collaborative Scheme for Early Career Researchers showcase, Creative Impacts, on Tuesday, where the winning research project was announced.
Executive Director for Culture, Munira Mirza attended the launch and announced the winning project as Belief Kill, Belief Cure, which addresses mental healthcare inequalities for the black community in Southwark and Lambeth. The project was led by Dr Louisa Codjoe from the Department of Health Service & Population Research in the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, who won a £500 prize towards her future research.
