The structural ableism of public health research

Excerpt of studentship listing. The studentship is offered at the University of Sheffield, and is funded by the prestigious Wellcome Trust. The excerpt begins, “Join the research effort to reduce the burden of chronic disease. Chronic disease accounts for the majority of the burden of disease in the developed world. This burden can be reduced through well-targeted and co-ordinated public health policies. Public Health Decision Science explicitly seeks to identify which combinations of interventions to prioritise for action, and to estimate their return on investment. This programme will prepare graduates for rewarding careers in academia or stakeholder organisations allowing them to contribute to public health decision making to reduce the burden of disease in the UK and internationally.
