[Perspectives] Betty Kirkwood: trailblazer in global health epidemiology

After 38 years at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), Betty Kirkwood is still in love with her academic home. “It’s the mission—shared by everyone from cleaners to refectory staff to academic staff—to improve health worldwide that brings a unique atmosphere to the school”, she says. Kirkwood is head of LSHTM’s Maternal and Child Health Intervention Research Group, and has been Professor of Epidemiology and International Health at LSHTM since 1995.
