An Introduction to Suhana Begum:

Arden Lecturer Suhana Begum

I'm a Practitioner Health Psychologist working within public health in health improvement. I am also an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA) and Assistant Publication Editor for the Behavioural Science and Public Health Network (BSPHN). My research specialises in behaviour change (diet, physical activity and substance misuse) within a public health context using evidence based methodology to devise behaviour change interventions; evaluation of healthcare services and public health interventions; the wider determinants of health (such as the links between employment, fuel poverty, food poverty, impact of quality of housing and health) and reducing health inequalities.
