Join RE-FRESH & the Nourish Network for a live–streamed panel discussion exploring how public health research has supported government and health and wellbeing agencies to deliver effective health promotion and prevention strategies.
As the Centre of Research Excellence in Food Retail Environments for Health (RE-FRESH) approaches the end of its current iteration, we are pleased to be bringing together a group of our partners to discuss how our research can continue to support our partners to improve the health of food environments and deliver evidence-based health promotion strategies.
In a panel discussion led by the Director of RE-FRESH and the Nourish Network, Alfred Deakin Professor Anna Peeters AM, you will hear will about what evidence partners value, how research can support their aims and how we can all work collaboratively to bring about wide-reaching food environment change.
This panel will feature academic and practice experts, including:
