Angie Bone

Angie is a consultant in public health and part of the Extreme Events and Health Protection team at Public Health England. A medical doctor by background, she has a broad range of experience at local, national and international level. This includes UK public health training, European Programme in Interventional Epidemiology training (EPIET), and appointments with the Health Protection Agency, Merlin and the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the World Health Organization.

Angie’s interests include environmental public health and infectious disease epidemiology. Her main area of interest is on reducing vulnerability to extreme events and climate change, through sustainable development, and appropriate preparedness, response and recovery. She is particularly focussed on public health actions that both protect health from extreme events, as well as improving health and well-being, such as addressing fuel poverty, promoting active transport and green infrastructure. She is keen to ensure that what we do know to be effective is translated into practice, and in ensuring that public health initiatives are evaluated in order to improve and share knowledge.
