Tamsyn Eida BA, MA, MSc

Research Associate

 

 

I joined CHSS as a Research Assistant in June 2017 and am currently working on the research evaluation of the Go Golborne project. This is a ‘whole place’ community-approach project aimed at preventing obesity in childhood and improving associated outcomes for children and their families.

My background is in work to improve the accessibility of health and public services. I have 12 years’ experience of delivering training, programme evaluation, community involvement and policy development around these issues. Prior to this, I worked overseas for VSO, ICRC and UNICEF in a range of roles including teaching, arts development, protection and interpreting.

My main research interest is in migrant health, primarily around improving access to and communication within healthcare, and building awareness and support for operational staff within progressive strategic and policy frameworks.

I completed my MSc in Health Psychology at Liverpool John Moores University and previously, an MA in Applied Theatre at the University of Manchester. I have a BSc in Psychology from the University of Northumbria at Newcastle.
