13 & 14 December 2023 In-person, BMA House, London Driving real-world impact from health research

Sarah O'Brien

Health Foundation

Sarah was diagnosed as autistic as an adult and took this knowledge into research, policy, clinical settings and the charity sector. She has worked with autistic people to support them to have their views heard by the government, by researchers and in designing accessible healthcare services. Taking together these personal and professional experiences, Sarah now focuses on the inclusive involvement of disabled people in different areas of local and national decision making by looking at the processes of how we can actively include and exclude people. She can often be found researching involvement at King’s College London, writing about autism, cross-stitching, or running.
