Emily Dobell

I am currently working for the Global Public Health Division of Public Health England (PHE) as part of PHE’s One Health team within the International Health Regulations Strengthening Project. I am a Specialty Registrar in Public Health (ST4) with a medical degree from the University of Nottingham and a Master’s in Global Health Science from the University of Oxford. My Master’s research focussed on cardiovascular disease mortality in Cuba.

I recently undertook the NHS Improving Global Health through Leadership Development Fellowship in rural northeast Cambodia, leading quality improvement projects for the prevention of malaria, dengue and childhood malnutrition.

My previous public health work has involved developing the strategy for reducing inequalities in access to cancer screening services across the Thames Valley, an audit of TB in prisons and immigration removal centres across the South East of England, a homeless health service evaluation at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and a campaign for health safeguards after Brexit with the UK Faculty of Public Health.

I have a strong interest in health inequalities, global public health capacity building, infectious disease outbreak control and the interface between human, animal and environmental health.
