The Yorkshire ASO Network has been one of the ASO's longest running groups, originally run by Professor Andy Hill in the early 2000's. The network generally meets in the early evening and welcomes input from local researchers and practitioners across the region. Please contact Dr Graham Finlayson or Dr Alison Fildes if you have suggestions for a meeting theme.
