Description

On behalf of the Global Obesity Centre (GLOBE), Deakin University and the Obesity Policy Coalition, we would like to invite you to attend our forthcoming Deakin Food Policy Dialogue meeting. This meeting will bring together a diverse range of stakeholders, including researchers, practitioners and policy makers with a keen interest in, or influence on, healthy food policies. This year the policy focus is on ‘Creating healthier food retail environments’.

This one-day workshop will present the latest international and local research on creating healthier food retail environments. The aim of the workshop is to identify policy opportunities, tools required to support action, and areas for further research.
