SDHI affiliated researcher Dr Jenna Breckenridge has won the College of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing award for early career researchers. For two years in a row, SDHI researchers have won this prize. Last year, Dr Jacqui Morris received this award. Jenna is an occupational therapist by background and has worked as a qualitative researcher on a number of research projects. At present she is a postdoctoral researcher in the Scottish Improvement Science Collaborating Centre (SISCC), which is supported by SDHI. Her research focuses on addressing the inequalities experienced by vulnerable or under-represented groups and improving the accessibility, delivery and evaluation of health and social care services.
Following on from a very successful retreat in October 2013, SDHI will be hosting a further 2-day retreat for postgraduate students and early career researchers engaged in applied health research from Monday 29th to Tuesday 30th September 2014 at Kindrogan FSC.
