Biography

With over 20 years of experience working in a public sector physical activity environment, Coral has worked as both a deliverer and manager of physical activity interventions for those with long-term conditions since 1995. She completed a part-time PhD at Durham University in 2017. This was a large-scale, pragmatic, mixed methods evaluation of a community based physical activity programme.

In January 2017, Coral joined Edinburgh Napier University as a researcher for a three year project examining barriers and facilitators to male participation in a community-based physical activity referral program. This nurse led research project is an international collaboration between Edinburgh Napier University, University of Sydney and Flinders University, Adelaide.
