Dr Jenny Douglas, is a Senior Lecturer in Health Promotion in the Faculty of Wellbeing, Education and Language Studies at the Open University.
She has a PhD in Women’s Studies from the University of York. Jenny’s research and scholarship has concentrated on changing policy, practice and approaches to research in health promotion and public health. Her research is both varied and wide ranging, spanning 30 years on issues of race, health and ethnicity. The key theme unifying research and activism is intersectionality – exploring how ‘race’, class and gender and other axes of difference affect particular aspects of African-Caribbean women’s health.
