Kate is Professor of Gender and Health at the University of Glasgow and Associate Director of the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit (SPHSU). She has led SPHSU’s research programme on understanding and improving health within settings and organisations from 2014-18, with a particular interest in professional sports and prison settings.
Until 2014 Kate led SPHSU’s gender and health programme, reflecting a longstanding interest in how social constructions of gender impact on men’s and women’s risk and experiences of ill-health, and on health behaviours and help-seeking behaviours. In February 2018, Kate is moving to University of Stirling to take up a new position as Chair in Behavioural Sciences and Health.
The evening will include the presentation of awards to MSc students graduating in Nutrition, Physical Activity & Public Health MSc and will be followed by drinks and light refreshments.
