Full description:

The link between health behaviour and chronic disease is well established, however translating risk of disease based on unhealthy behaviours is difficult at an individual level.

We’re looking for a lay members to input into the development and design of the predictive tool. The tool will predict a person’s likelihood of disease based on their unhealthy behaviours. This will be integrated within GP systems and provide visuals as a way of better communicating disease risk e.g. red for high risk.
