New Head of Programmes joins our team

17/10/14 . News

The Men's Health Forum has added a Head of Programmes to its staff team. 

Tracy Herd joined the organisation today and will drive our work through programme development, programme leadership and delivery. Initially, her particular focus will be on expanding the Men's Health Forum's innovative Man MOT service and driving forward our research programmes on obesity.

Tracy joins us from the Royal Borough of Greenwich where she was Healthier Communities Programme Manager, with a wide remit including developing and delivering their extensive men's health programme. She also led on the Well London project for the borough taking an asset based and community development approach to improving the health and wellbeing of the most deprived communities in Greenwich.  Previously Tracy also established the Greenwich Men’s Health Forum, engaging with partner organisations across the borough to raise the profile of the need to address local poor health outcomes for men.

Martin Tod, Chief Executive of the Men's Health Forum said 'I am delighted that Tracy's joining us. We have some important projects that will make a difference to men's lives and her experience will help us deliver them even more effectively.'

The Men’s Health Forum need your support

It’s tough for men to ask for help but if you don’t ask when you need it, things generally only get worse. Especially during a major pandemic like Covid-19. So we’re asking.

Men appear more likely to get Covid-19 and far, far more likely to die from it. The Men's Health Forum are working hard pushing for more action on this from government, from health professionals and from all of us. Why are men more affected and what can we do about it? We need the data. We need the research. We need the action. Currently we're the only UK charity doing this - please help us.

Here’s our fund-raising page - please chip in if you can.
