Christine Hancock, director of C3 Collaborating for Health

Christine Hancock founded C3 Collaborating for Health after a career working in nursing and Britain’s NHS. When she was President of the International Council of Nurses she saw the impact the growing burden of chronic disease was having across the world. Derek Yach at WHO was the first person who made her aware that prevention was what was urgently needed.

Christine’s role:

Christine leads the small team at C3, building on the contacts she made when she was CEO at the Royal College of Nursing and before that as CEO of Waltham Forest’s NHS. An economist from LSE she believes in the power of data, clear evidence and a good case to secure support from all areas of society necessary to achieve the change that is needed to secure healthier lives, especially for the most disadvantaged people.

How Christine practises what she preaches:

Christine stays fit with a weekly Pilates session, she eats much more fruit and vegetables and her pedometer and the WalkIt.com web site have helped her find new areas of London.
