Sarah Rodgers

Professor Sarah Rodgers is a health data scientist with methodological expertise in evaluating complex public health interventions and policy changes using large routinely collected administrative datasets. Her research for GroundsWell focuses on using safe haven data that have been linked across health, social and environmental domains to explore the impact of exposures such as decent housing conditions, alcohol outlets, pollution, and natural outdoor spaces, on health and wellbeing. Since 2018 Sarah has lead the Care and Health Informatics theme of the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration for the Northwest Coast and joined the NIHR School for Public Health Research as capacity building lead for LiLaC. Sarah is particularly interested in working with local governments to harness data collected in sectors not usually thought to impact health, to inform local and national disease prevention strategies and funding to reduce health inequity.
