Description: I currently work as the Research and Information Manager for Balance - The North East Alcohol Office. Balance itself is a local authority funded public health team which uses social marketing techniques, such as mass media campaigns and facilitation of partnership working, in order to influence attitudes and behaviour towards alcohol consumption at the population level in the region. I have research and analysis experience across a broad array of alcohol related harm and public health issues and play a key role in ensuring that Balance follows and contributes to the evidence base both.
