We are delighted to announce that Professor Sarah Curtis has been elected a Fellow of the British Academy

(23 July 2014)

This honour reflects her major contribution to work on Health Geographies especially the dimensions of inequalities of health and health care, in the physical and social environment and understandings of risk and how to build resilience to these. As well as contributing to theoretical development of health geography, her work has strong applied and international aspects. Her research has informed and contributed to health policy development and evaluation of health services in the UK, France, Russia, Poland, Canada and the USA.

Sarah joins other Fellows from the department Professor Ian Simmons (elected to a fellowship in 1997) and Professor Ray Hudson (elected in 2006).
