Welcome to Professor Mary Rudolf
On Monday we welcome Prof Mary Rudolf to the department for 2 months. Mary has a visiting Fellowship at Jesus College and will spend most of her time based in NDPCHS. She has broad interests as a paediatrician, academic and educator and is keen to make the most of her visit by meeting with lots of new people and is happy to give talks to staff or students.
Mary is on sabbatical from her position as head of the Center for Public Health in the Bar-Ilan University’s Faculty of Medicine, which was set up specifically to addresses inequities in health care in an underserved community and to brings economic development to a disadvantaged region. Prior to moving to Israel five years ago, Mary was at the University of Leeds. She is an academic community paediatrician and former president of the British Association of Community Child Health. She has a particular research interest in obesity and set up the HENRY (Health Exercise and Nutrition for the Really Young) which trains community and health professionals to work more effectively with parents to change the home environment to cultivate a healthier lifestyle.
