My name is Faye Acton, I am a research assistant working for Anglia Ruskin University in the Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care and a part time PhD student. My PhD research is investigating the intersection between health and education by looking at the delivery of Public Health in an educational setting.
I started my professional career in Health Improvement working with a team of school nurses in Essex. I designed and delivered health improvement programmes and interventions for children and young people aged 5-16 years.
I then qualified as a primary school teacher and worked up to become an Inclusion Leader.
I now combine my passion for both health and education by working on research projects which span both these fields.
