Guddi Singh | Speaker Biography

Dr Guddi Singh is a paediatric doctor in London with extensive experience in global public health and as a TV presenter. She is passionate about social justice and health equity. With her policy experience at the World Health Organisation (WHO) and Health Education England (HEE), as well as her clinical experience in various countries such as India, the US, Australia, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda, she has gained a global perspective on health despite being based in the UK.

As a TV broadcaster, Dr Guddi has made appearances on various outlets including the BBC, Channel 4, ITV, Al-Jazeera, and Sky News. Her first presenting role was as the host of BBC Two's "Babies: Their Wonderful World," which was the largest study on early child development ever attempted. In the award-winning documentary "Why is COVID Killing People of Colour?", Dr Guddi's expertise was instrumental in analyzing and addressing racial inequality during the global pandemic. This investigative approach was also followed in two BBC Two Horizon specials and Channel 4's "How to Avoid a Second Wave," which critically examined the UK's politics, policies, and handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2022, Dr Guddi hosted BBC Two's "Your Body Uncovered," a six-part series that utilized augmented reality to help patients understand their everyday medical conditions - the first time this had been shown on-screen.

Apart from her television work, Dr Guddi has combined her interdisciplinary expertise with accessible public communication in other formats. She has written extensively, including for The Guardian newspaper, on topics she actively campaigns for, such as the right to public healthcare, COVID-19, health inequality, air pollution, arts in health, and child poverty. Dr Guddi also regularly contributes to radio and podcasts, where she chairs live events, engages in intellectual debates, and conducts interviews with best-selling authors for the Intelligence Squared podcast.

Dr Guddi is committed to "humanizing" healthcare and is currently conducting research on the social dimensions of disease and illness for her PhD, exploring what this means for 21st-century medicine.
