A team which included NUI Galway health economist Dr. Aoife Callan, recently won the ‘Best Project in General Practice’ category in the 2014 Crystal Clear MSD Health Literacy Awards 2014.

The "SIMPLe" Team designed and developed an iPad App called 'Bug Run School Days' for GP surgeries to create awareness about the issue of antibiotic resistance.

Prof Eamon O’ Shea (Economics) and Dr. Christine Domegan (Marketing) were also part of the wider advisory group on the SIMPle project which informed the development of Bug Run School days.
