Dr. Englander has a particular interest in addressing women's health inequities regionally and globally. As a 2018 Eisenhower Fellow (USA), he visited Mongolia and Israel to understand cultural, religious, and ethnic barriers to healthcare—in particular, breast cancer—and opportunities to address these barriers in the United States. He established an NGO, Benek Global Health Project, which focuses on these same issues, as well as the impact of conflict upon healthcare. He is actively engaged in both clinical and research work and education in Asia, Africa, and the Americas.

Dr. Englander is currently working to establish mobile cancer screening through Penn Medicine to address health inequities and access issues in the Philadelphia region and has plans in place to use the mobile cancer screening, diagnosis, and management process in specific regions.
