Now that we have seemingly unlimited access to content from all over the globe, the task of sorting through the latest information to find out what matters most becomes increasingly tough.
At VicHealth, we are in the privileged position of seeing, debating and even contributing to ideas being explored by researchers and change-makers around the world – and, through the VicHealth Letter, we’re pleased to be able to share those conversations and that knowledge with you. In this issue we’ve put together stories that will help you:
- get to know the underlying social forces that can prevent women from enjoying the powerful benefits of regular physical activity
- hear what the experts have to say about the impact alcohol sponsorships have on young sports fans
- follow the discussion about how best to support healthy eating habits across the population.
We’re also sharing an interview with our founding chair, Sir Gustav Nossal, whose life’s work reveals a deepening understanding of the need to address social and environmental factors to ensure equal access to good health for all members of the community.
We hope these stories provide you with some added momentum as you work towards the future good health of all Victorians.
