Researcher & Consultant

Community Power and Health | Medical Information

Examples of my work

My work examines the realities of bridging the health sector and communities. It is fuelled by the insight that health care in high-income countries is increasingly unsustainable because clinical science and practice fail to appreciate how people and communities understand their health.

As an independent researcher and writer, I fund my work through consulting and speaking. My consulting is not only in community engagement, power and health but also in medical information. I have worked as an editor and/or publisher at TEDMED, Map of Medicine, F1000, BioMed Central and The BMJ.
