NCOIS are proud to be participating in the 2022 annual Preventative Health Conference.

The conference, convened by the Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA) will be held in Brisbane (and virtually) from 11th to 13th May.

The theme, ‘Accelerating Action’ has informed a program focused on sharing the latest research about the things we can, and need, to do now to advance public health.  Presentations will give EVERYONE new skills or ideas to take away and implement to improve the health of all Australians.

NCOIS researchers are excited to share research findings about the use of mobile health (app) interventions, the influence of uniforms on physical activity, the impact of physical activity on children’s wellbeing, the cost-effectiveness of interventions, and intervention scaling up and sustainment.
