On a related topic, we are very keen to find speakers from BAMS group who are academics (in any field) to step up to continue this series. If you would be interested or know of someone in the BAMS community that you think would be happy to do a short talk within their field of research, we would be keen to hear. One of the main objectives was to provide a forum to network with the JETAA Academic special interest group to ensure greater networking. If you have recently returned from your scholarship and are interesting in sharing your topic of research, then please do reach out by replying to this e-mail
