Janet Ocloo

PhD Student, Health Sciences

I am Janet Ocloo. I hold a Master of Science degree in Public Health Promotion from Leeds Beckett University, UK and a Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Laboratory Sciences (Pathology) from the University of Ghana. I have worked as a biomedical scientist in Ghana for two decades and have keen interests in public health research. My research focuses on the determinants of health and health inequalities, social exclusion, well-being and quality of life of children with special needs and their families.

For my PhD, my research seeks to explore the perspectives of caregivers and clinicians to identify ways to improve the quality of life of caregivers in developing countries. The research seeks to identify and evaluate existing support systems in comparison with those of developed countries.

I am very excited to be part of this great team of celebrated professionals of various backgrounds working together to promote health through the creative arts. I am very eager to learn new and innovative ways of creating health and sharing it evenly among the populations who need it most.
