Researchers: Prof Billie Bonevski (Principal investigator)

Brief description Smoking is Australia’s top ranked cause of disease. It is also one of the main causes of inequalities in health outcomes. My research aims to test strategies to reducing smoking and improve other lifestyle behaviours, like diet and exercise, alcohol, and sun protection, in the most disadvantaged groups. To achieve this goal, I have partnered with health and non-health care services. I expect my research to reduce the gap in health behaviours and health outcomes between more and less advantaged sectors of society.
