Christin Ellermann

Research Scientist

Christin Ellermann is a research scientist at the Harding Center for Risk Literacy. Her research interests focus on issues of prevention and health promotion as well as evidence-based public health. To ensure that people have the best available scientific evidence to make informed health decisions, Christin applies systematic research methods, and summarises evidence transparently in fact boxes. Fact boxes offer simple information about the benefits and harms of medical interventions, thus enabling lay people to make decisions about their own treatment.
