Dr Sarah Hanson
Lecturer in Health Sciences
My research focus is preventative health and the development and evaluation of complex behavioral interventions to prevent non-communicable disease. Cancer disproportionately affects lower socio-economical groups. My work with marginalized groups (particularly women) aims to develop behavioral interventions to improve health literacy surrounding cancer to improve health behaviours, increase screening uptake, and develop early symptom awareness for earlier diagnosis.
I have been funded in my work by CRUK and Big C.
I am an advocate of science communication and contribute to events such as Norwich Science Festival and Pint of Science.
