Healthcare expert to address students

Sandy Clayton-Kent, who graduated with a PG Diploma in School Nursing, will be hosting the talk as part of the ‘Graduate to Great’ campaign, a programme dedicated to celebrating the University’s successful alumni.

Her lecture will be a fascinating look back on her career and the innovative projects she has been involved with, as well as offering students advice regarding future opportunities in the public health sector.

Sandy’s talk will be one of the events featured as part of the University’s School of Health and Wellbeing Applicant and Taster Day, to be held on Wednesday, 24 April 2013 between 12pm – 3.30pm.

The day will consist of introductions to three subject areas at the School - Health Studies, Public Health and Social Care – as well as giving prospective students the opportunity to talk to some of the students currently at the university.

Sandy is a graduate of the School of Health and Wellbeing and has worked as far afield as Hawaii, Africa and Hong Kong throughout her career. Sandy used her degree at the University to develop health innovations which have led her to work with NASA on infectious disease projects, as well as projects closer to home including educating young people about body piercing.

Ann Philp, Head of Recruitment, Retention and Employability for the University’s School of Health and Wellbeing, said: “I’m absolutely delighted to welcome Sandy back to the University of Wolverhampton. With so many fascinating experiences to share with us I’m sure she will enthral students and applicants with her stories and be able to impart wisdom that we can all learn from.”
