Rural Health and Well-being workshop

Dr Tom Kingstone is a researcher from Keele University. He is currently running an initiative called FRRESH, which stands for the Forum for Rural RESearch on Health & Well-being.

Through FRRESH we aim to bring rural stakeholders (e.g. health and social care workers, voluntary sector organisations, council members, members of the public, academics) together to discuss important health and well-being topics that impact people in rural areas. This discussion can then inform the research that we do.
