Could you contribute to Healthy Trinity through your work?


Could you do a project on Tobacco Free Trinity as part of your undergraduate or postgraduate work? Maybe something to do with attitudes to smoking, the effects of cigarette waste on water systems, the representation of smoking in 19th century literature. You'll have better ideas than us and we would love to hear them.

We can't take on every idea we hear, because of limited resources, but we would really like to work wiht you if we can. We've had brilliant projects completed by students in the past. Some examples below.


Are you running a course or doing research that could contribute to Healthy Trinity's Tobacco work? Could your students complete assignments on Tobacco Free Trinity? Are you aware of a research funding call that you'd like to work with us on or that might help us get work done. Maybe you can think of another way to work with Healthy Trinity. We'd love to hear from you. Our resource aren't what we'd like them to be but we'd be grateful to hear your ideas and would do our best to work with you to make them happen. Some examples of how Academics have worked with Healthy Trinity in the past are below.
