Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
The Association provides an umbrella for a range of Special Interest Groups to which Association members can belong as part of their membership entitlement. These SIGs mirror the main themes of the LEPH conferences, and members of the SIGs will become increasingly responsible for developing the conference program’s content related to a particular theme.
SIGs will bring together practitioners and researchers from different sectors and institutions and provide the opportunity for establishing research and translational relationships. As well, SIGs can organise satellite consultations and workshops in association with the LEPH conferences.
Here are some of the suggested SIGs – with more to come:

Information and resource sharing
Through the Association’s website members will have access to a very wide and continually growing range of resources including links to other institutions. An on-line library is envisaged, built on reports from initiatives in the LEPH field.
Through a regular e-Newsletter and via social media including Facebook and Twitter members will be able to share current information and updates.
