IHA colloquium series returns for 2016

Published: Wednesday 24th February 2016

The Institute for Health and Ageing's 2016 Live Long Live Well colloquium series kicks off at 2pm on Wednesday 2nd March with a presentation from Professor Gavin Turrell, who commenced with IHA in January 2016 as Professor in Social Epidemiology and Inequalities.

Gavin’s colloquium presentation is titled ‘Between-and within-person changes in bodyweight by transport mode: a longitudinal analysis using random coefficient and fixed-effect models’.

Gavin is Principal Investigator on the NHMRC-funded HABITAT study.  HABITAT is examining age-related change in health behaviours, risk factors, and physical and mental health between 2007 and 2018, and assesses the relative contribution of environmental, social, psychological, and socio-demographic factors to these changes. Gavin is also a Chief Investigator on the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Healthy, Liveable, and Equitable Communities, where he is leading a research program examining whether the neighbourhood built environment is causally related to health and wellbeing.

Please note this presentation is scheduled on Australian Eastern Daylight Time. Audio-visual and telephone conferencing facilities are available for our ACU colleagues across different campuses. Colleagues outside the university may participate by teleconference, or by attending in person at Level 6, 215 Spring Street in Melbourne.

All enquiries, registrations of interest and requests for audio-visual or teleconferencing can be directed to IHA@acu.edu.au or 03 9230 8170.
