    by
    A Call for Photographers Submissions open until 12 September 2013 NCDFREE is a global social movement against NCDs. REACH is a student-driven health initiative that promotes social change. We are collaborating to present a photographic exhibition on your vision of ‘An NCDFREE World’ that will be displayed at the NCDFREE launch on the 5th October as part of the Melbourne Festival of Ideas.

    Hi Everyone, Welcome to the new site! I just wanted to let everyone know that I have just added an attachment feature to all forum topics and posts.

If you have set up a group and can’t find docs, let me know and I will help you with getting it enabled. With attachments, especially pdf’s of journal articles, it is important that everyone respects any copyright that may be applicable. A good rule of thumb is, if you had to be logged in to your uni account to access the file, then it is not open access and should not be directly attached. Instead, please just post direct links to the article. As everyone should have access to the uni system,...
