Easter Bush Campus Community Engagement Award

The Easter Bush Campus was a proud winner of the Community Engagement Award at the prestigious Scottish Enterprise Life Sciences Awards held in Edinburgh.

The recognition highlights our wide-ranging engagement with the local community. Our nomination reflects our involvement in the Midlothian Science Festival, including the Campus Open Day and contributions to the schools programme, our outreach visits and activities on Campus, such as the innovative work experience programme ‘Science Insights’ and our ‘Hands-On Pathology - Understanding Disease’ event. It also profiled the work carried out by clinical staff and students who provide advice and a basic veterinary service across a number of Edinburgh Housing Associations, including the student-led veterinary care provided to the homeless in the area.

Our relationship with the local community is very important to us and we are delighted to receive this award in recognition of our commitment and our engagement locally. Winning this award is due to outstanding work and dedication by our staff across a great many initiatives and I am very pleased that this award has highlighted this aspect of our work with the community.
