Magda’s national TV health check stars RE-FRESH
When Aussie favourite Magda Szubanski appeared on national television seeking answers to the question “Why are Australians so unhealthy?” on the three-part ABC documentary ‘Magda’s Big National Health Check’ , you may have noticed some familiar faces from our team!
A/Prof. Kathryn Backholer, Prof. Steve Allender and our Associate Investigator Jane Martin, from the Obesity Policy Coalition, all provided expert commentary about how preventing chronic disease is about more than individual discipline.
Tune into Ep. 1 for A/Prof. Backholer’s innovative research on junk food marketing to children; catch Ep. 2 for Prof. Allender’s work with the Mansfield community on healthy food uptake and Ep. 3 as Jane Martin uncovers some of the secrets lurking behind the claims on packaged foods.
It’s great to see a focus on Australians’ health at a population level, and a credit to our researchers to have been selected as expert voices for this series.
