Presentation of myself

In my role as "Flexit Researcher" at the Municipalities of Norrbotten I lead the research project Collaborative Health Work for Children and Young People in Norrbotten. This can be linked to programs at the Department of Art, Communication and Education and the Department of Health Sciences. I am also Affiliated Professor of Education with a health focus at Halmstad University. Together with colleagues I have during the past few years developed the Health Guidance Program, which offers a bachelor's degree in health promotion.
