We are pleased to announce that Dr Emily Tweed has joined the DRNS Steering Committee.
Emily is a Clinical Lecturer in Public Health at the University of Glasgow and an Honorary Specialty Registrar at NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. Her interests generally are in the social context of health and health inequalities, and she is currently working on a CSO-funded project investigating the health of people with intersecting experiences of substance use, homelessness, criminal justice involvement, and serious mental illness, using administrative data linkage. She also has a particular interest in gender and substance use and presented her work on drug-related deaths among women at a DRNS seminar.
We welcome Dr Tweed to DRNS and hope to make best use of her expertise as a Public Health practitioner, early career researcher, and engaged academic with a strong interest in substance use and related health equity issues.
