Kylie Fagan

PhD Student
Glasgow Caledonian University
Kylie joined the Yunus Centre in 2014 with a primary focus on social innovation and social enterprise research. Now undertaking her PhD within the Centre entitled “The co-production of health: community led innovations in rural healthcare”, she aims to critically examine the move towards increased participation, engagement and empowerment of citizens within health care services and ask how this change may impact upon local people and communities as well as the wider health system itself. This project will have a particular focus on the Alaskan Native owned Nuka System of Care and will examine how this model is currently being adapted for use across rural Scotland.

Prior to working at GCU, Kylie worked across the third sector on issues relating to rural health and development, public participation and community enterprises. She gained her Master’s degree in Global Health & Anthropology from the University of Edinburgh and BSc (Hons) from the University of Glasgow.
