Prof Emily YY Chan is currently the Director of Collaborating Centre for Oxford University and CUHK for Disaster and Medical Humanitarian Response (CCOUC), Director of Centre of Global Health, Associate Professor, and Convener (Climate Change and Health Study Group), Faculty of Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Apart from being a public health research expert, she is also an expert in health need and program evaluation assessments of medical humanitarian interventions in extreme events and health program development in remote and resource deficit settings. In 2007, Professor Chan has established the Climate Change and Health Research Study Group at the JC School of Public Health and Primary Care at The Chinese University of Hong Kong and she headed of the CUHK-HKO Collaborative Research Team on Climate Change and Health Outcomes (2012-2014). The research aims are to examine and provide evidence-based insights on various health impacts and associated community behaviors related to climate change. Currently, the two main funded research areas are i) health impact modeling (mortality, morbidity and self-reported health outcomes), and ii) behavioral assessments (knowledge, attitude, perception, risk literacy and communication predictors). Among the international peer-reviewed publication, the recent climate change-related study focusing on the relationship between weather phenomena and pollution levels and daily hospital admissions in Hong Kong has been published in Bulletin of World Health Organization.  She serves in the editorial boards of several international scientific journal and as technical expert in various governing boards of international non-governmental organizations and government advisory groups in areas related to medical humanitarian response, Climate change and health and health related interventions in difficult settings.
