Upcoming ColaLife presentations and dissemination activities

ColaLife’s strategy for global impact is that others will pick up the robust evidence that we are generating and use it to inform their own public health strategies and actions. To achieve this people need to know what ColaLife is and what we’ve achieved. One way we raise awareness of our work and share our findings is by presenting at high-profile conferences. This is a list of our current commitments.

If you’d like one of the ColaLife Team to present at an event you are running please contact us.
