Meet the Team: Clare

Hi, I’m Clare!

Hi! I joined Generation Scotland in May 2021 as a Recruitment Co-ordinator. At the time of writing this post I’m still brand new (with tags). My aims within this role are to oversee the recruitment of thousands more volunteers to Generation Scotland (no pressure). We’re particularly looking for young adults aged 12 and up who have never been able to join until now. We want to reach out to members of the public, or patients with particular health needs. This ensures their valuable insights and opinions guide the decisions we make as a research team.

Before joining Generation Scotland I worked at The Centre for Dementia Prevention. I was a psychometric rater, completing thinking and memory tasks with those living with dementia and healthy volunteers at varying risks of developing neurodegenerative disease. Whilst working towards my MSc in Clinical Health Psychology, I worked in mental health hospitals as a care assistant, usually in continuing care of the elderly wards. Whilst I hope to remain active in dementia prevention research, I am excited about the variety of physical and mental health conditions Generation Scotland collects data on. I can’t wait to see how this shapes my research interests going forward.

In my spare time, I love to read, particularly Stephen King books. I even named our family cat Churchy (short for Churchill) after the feline lead in ‘Pet Cemetery’. During lockdown I have taken up running as a hobby, but I’d be lying if I said I enjoyed it just yet!
