Career Summary

Biography

Since completion of my PhD in 1997, the University of Newcastle has had an agreement with the Hunter New England Health Service whereby I contribute to the latter organisations delivery of population health services.

In this context I have extended my state, national and international reputation for population health research, particularly in the area of re-orientating health and other agencies towards the adoption of policies and practices that have a disease prevention and health risk reduction focus. This work has primarily involved research in changing the service delivery practices of agencies with regard to the prevention of obesity, and to reducing alcohol and tobacco related harms.
