Sandra Smith

I believe my personal experience of Motor Neurone Disease, terminal diseases and end of life care within my personal and volunteering life, along with my passion and commitment enables me to identify with the strategy and ethics of being an ARC NWC Public Adviser.

As a Public Adviser, I bring a voice of the public into discussion and more importantly decisions. By representing them I can influence and contribute to a variety of health research projects.

I have not only developed and enhanced my skill base but given me the opportunity to meet like minded people including fellow public advisor to researchers and health and social care professionals. and work with them across the Network and is a great way to meet fellow health care professionals.
