Rebekah completed a BSc (Hons) Psychology and MSc Social Research Methods before joining HSCI in 2006 and the Research Methods team in 2015. Rebekah's interest in Public Health arose from working as a Healthcare Assistant at James Cook University Hospital, with NHS Professionals (a nurse bank), during her undergraduate degree. Rebekah is also studying, part time, towards a PhD.
Rebekah's current projects include:
- An evaluation of the Ur Choice (Relationships and Sex Education) programme in Bradford schools
