Hi, I’m Phil and welcome to Philandtropical; a site full of my experiences in Tropical Medicine, Health and Disease.
I am half tropical and half very non-tropical (best of both worlds!). From a very young age I have been fortunate enough to visit the tropics many times – mainly to the Philippines. These early exposures have certainly had a big influence on me, as well as my studies and other work which has also given me experiences working in tropical regions. Somewhere along the way, I have become fascinated by issues of health and disease in these regions. And just travelling in the tropics in general!
I hope you enjoy the blogsite. Do feel free to get in-touch!
