Rachel Starer


Having worked as a GP in Didcot for 30 years, Rachel cared for many families living with significant social disadvantage and has seen the negative impact this has on health. It became her ambition to help struggling families, and in particular young people by considering novel pathways that might lead to improved opportunities for them, hence became involved with SOFEA. As a tutor to medical students at the University of Oxford, Rachel seeks every teaching opportunity to shine a light on the facts that life-chances and social determinants of health are of absolute prime importance.
