Post Date:

The University of Essex has recently celebrated the launch of its new Public Health and Wellbeing Institute, which Provide Community is supporting with a donation of £135,000 to fund an exciting three-year fellowship.

News of the funding was announced at the launch of Essex’s fourth research institute, where Mark Heasman met with Vice Chancellor Professor Anthony Forster to hand over the cheque. The event was incredibly popular, with over 100 people from across both the health and social care sector in attendance, which saw guests celebrating the University’s latest efforts in bringing together students and researchers to improve health and wellbeing.

The three-year fellowship will see students combine artificial intelligence and advanced data analytics with unique medical approaches throughout their studies, enabling them to explore new areas of interest within the health and wellbeing industry.

Provide Community is excited to witness the evolution of this research in the coming years as the relationship between Provide and the University of Essex continues to grow stronger.

Mark Heasman, who is the Group Chief Executive Director of Provide, said; “It is a real privilege to have such a dynamic and forward-thinking partnership with the University which goes back over more than ten years. At Provide, we are keen to be at the forefront of innovative thinking in the health and wellbeing arena, and funding this research enables us to do this. We are excited about our ongoing partnership and progressing new ideas and approaches.”

Having worked closely with the University for just over ten years, Provide Community is proud to be able to contribute to the institution’s development, both in terms of research and capability.

Professor Anthony Forster, Vice Chancellor of the University of Essex, said; “For many years Provide has supported our community to take on key health challenges through research, employability and knowledge exchanging activities. This significant investment is a testament to Provide’s commitment to improving health and wellbeing and quality of life across the East of England. I’m delighted that with this generous donation we can continue this great work together.”
