Dr Laura Asher
MBBS MSc MSc MFPH
I am a speciality registrar in public health and I completed the MSc in Epidemiology at LSHTM in 2011. In 2012 I started my PhD project as a Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Fellow at LSHTM.
My PhD project is on the development and evaluation of a Rehabilitation Intervention for people with Schizophrenia in Ethiopia (RISE). The RISE intervention will be informed by the community-based rehabilitation (CBR) model and will be tested in a cluster randomised trial. RISE is nested in PRIME (Programme for Improving Mental healthcaRE), a 6 year DfID project spanning five countries In Africa and Asia.
