Health and Well-Being

Within this interdisciplinary pathway, students explore the interaction between 3 important lifestyle behaviours nutrition, physical activity and substance use (i.e. smoking and alcohol consumption), and their impact on public health and risks for chronic diseases. A particular focus is on preparing students with a range of skills to develop and evaluate interventions and strategies to improve health behaviour. The pathway is supported by a unique integration of research groups that engage in the latest critical thinking on disease risk determinants and correlates across the lifespan (personal, socio-cultural, environmental, psychobiological); behaviour change of individuals and societies; health inequalities; broader social, political and economic contexts in which research on health and wellbeing is carried out and applied in national and international policy making processes; and strategies to enhance collaboration between academia, industry, and third sector organisations to successfully improve public health indicators.
