May 11, 2021

Leeanne Morgan, Community Advocate with our Travelling Ahead Project is co-author of an academic paper just published in the European Journal of Cancer Care:

‘Cancer diagnosis, treatment and care: A qualitative study of the experiences and health service use of Roma, Gypsies and Travellers’

The study was carried out using peer research methods with Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities,  Leeanne acting as a researcher and advisor for the Swansea University team led by Professor Louise Condon.

This is a wonderful achievement and the research itself will help raise awareness and design better support and health services for Gypsy, Roma and Traveller families

We are so pleased for Leeanne and proud of her that her work has been recognised in this way – and that it will make a difference.
