Brief description I am a social scientist with public health training. In public health it is routine to ask: How many people are affected by that disease? – or – What interventions work? We also need to begin asking: What is the right thing to do, and how can we tell? I will study the practice of prevention and health promotion, and how lay people manage their health. I will use the resulting evidence, with stakeholders, to develop new approaches to ethical problems, and ensure that interventions can be ethically justified.
