Professor John Cairney from UQ’s School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences featured in a Health and Wellbeing Queensland article about the launch of the new centre.

The establishment of a new research centre partnership between UQ and Health and Wellbeing Queensland is set to boost the health and wellbeing of Queenslanders. 

“Queenslanders from across the state, including urban, rural and remote communities, will benefit from the Health and Wellbeing Centre for Research Innovation’s advances in equitable, evidence-based and sustainable prevention approaches for healthy active living and healthy eating,” Professor John Cairney said. 

“With expertise from across the spectrum of health, education, policy, and research, and a program of work supporting Queenslanders across their lifespan, the centre will be at the forefront of capacity building and workforce development. 

“The centre will inform and enable Health and Wellbeing Queensland’s program design, implementation and evaluation, with targeted research to deliver the most impactful preventative health for all Queenslanders."
