Participant View – James Girvan

One of the great things about the ADVANCE Study participant visits is that we get to meet the people behind the names and the data that we are analysing. Without the dedication of the participants the Study wouldn’t be a success. We want to give our participants the opportunity to get their thoughts and views across about the Study and also give you an insight into their reasons for participating and what they hope to gain from being part of it.

Our first participant interviewee is James Girvan. James is undertaking a 5 km run a day throughout November for the charity Beyond the Battlefield, raising money for Northern Ireland’s first veterans’ centre.
