We would love to find people who will help us fill the following roles
Margaret has a PhD in biology and Masters in public health and is an honorary cancer researcher. She is interested in researching all aspects of learning disability.
Her daughter Karen, who had LD, was moved from home following an assessment of capacity under the Mental Capacity Act 2005. Karen lost her life to breast cancer at the age of 44 even though she attended for annual health checks. This is why Margaret was more than happy to work with LDCC to create the Annual Health Checks survey.
She also runs “Karen’s Page“, a site dedicated to informing families of people with LD what problems they may encounter, and help to prevent a similar tragedy happening to them.
