Brief description Adolescence is a critical life stage where health behaviours are formed that have a lifelong impact. My work program focuses on understanding the impact of food insecurity, as well as the extent of food skills and other self-care capabilities in young people. I will also explore understandings of health and well-being among young Aboriginal women. Collectively this work will identify opportunities for interventions for this group that take into account their broader social environment.
