Doctor Adam Briggs

Oxford (United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland)

Adam Briggs is a public health StR. He currently divides his time between The Health Foundation, London and with Berkshire West Integrated Care Partnership. With both organisations he is working on how NHS integrated care reforms can improve population health. He has published multiple research papers exploring how public health policies - in particular soft drink taxation - might impact population health. Other research interests include public health economics; the relationship between health, diet and sustainability; and the impact of health system reform on population health. He studied graduate-entry medicine at Oxford, where he also gained an MSc in Global Health, and a DPhil in public health economics. He recently returned from a year as a Harkness Fellow at Dartmouth College in the US, and is a co-applicant on the NIHR-funded evaluation of the soft drink industry levy.
