When our reseachers got dads and kids together something went missing. About 8 kilos, on average
Our researcher Dr Phil Morgan believes healthy living should involve the whole family. So he and his team developed a pilot education program deploying overweight dads as ‘agents of change’.
The program was based around educating dads so they would, in turn, teach kids to eat better food, and be more active.
Results have been spectacular. Kids learned a lot, dads were pleased to lose an average of 8 kilos-and everyone had heaps of fun.
This is just one example of how we’re working with the community in highly effective ways.
But it’s true that this kind of work takes a special kind of person. If you’re ready to study for a degree in education, you’ll appreciate our unique approach to learning - and thinking.
