My name is Kirstin Watt and I am a Geography student at the University of Glasgow. For my Honours Dissertation I am conducting a study which aims to establish the impacts of flooding on public health. This is an area of research which I believe has been somewhat overlooked.
I am keen to address this and reposition it as high priority. Given its recent flooding history, Comrie is one of my chosen study sites and I will be looking to distribute questionnaires to both flooded and non-flooded residents over the next month. I am hoping to conduct this survey during the Comrie Fortnight. In the meantime,
I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself and encourage you to be in touch with any information you think may be helpful to this study. In particular, I am interested in hearing from anyone who may have suffered any physical or psychological health issues as a result of the recent floods. Any local insight into the impacts of flooding would be very much appreciated. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
