In memory of Dr Lindsey Dugdill
Article Type: Editorial From: International Journal of Workplace Health Management, Volume 8, Issue 1
We are deeply saddened to let you know of the death of Dr Lindsey Dugdill following a brave battle with cancer.
Dr Lindsey Dugdill was Professor in Public Health, and formerly Associate Dean (Research) at the University of Salford, UK. Her death marks an enormous loss to the public health field and the International Journal of Workplace Health Management. Lindsey acted as an Associate Editor in the area of health interventions in the workplace for the Journal since its inception in 2008. She was a dedicated and reliable contributor, often going above and beyond the call of duty. Lindsey was passionate about her research and her role as Associate Editor. I recall her passion and enthusiasm in an e-mail I received from her stating that she simply must be part of the Journal. This type of enthusiasm is not only contagious, but rare to find, so it has been my great pleasure and privilege to have had the opportunity to work with her in this capacity. She was the Associate Editor I would often turn to for advice and support.
Dr Dugdill’s work extends far beyond the Journal. She authored two academic books and numerous book chapters, research papers and reports. She was involved with a number of national and international organizations in the public health arena such as the World Health Organization, Health Development Agency, Department of Health Obesity Task Force, Chief Medical Officer task group on Physical Activity, National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence and the National Obesity Observatory.
So, thank you Lindsey for your years of valuable contribution to the Journal and for sharing the passion for workplace health. You will be missed greatly and remembered fondly.
