National Treasure Magda Szubanski has taken a deep dive into chronic disease in Australia and what we can do to reduce its impact.
And where did she start?
By talking to our director, Associate Professor Melanie Davern, and learning about how where you live has a big impact on your health.
The RMIT AUO maps lived environment social determinants of health for Australia’s largest 21 cities. These social determinants can predict up to 50% of your health outcomes longterm.
And how can understanding these social determinants in your community help improve health and wellbeing for all? Magda says it so perfectly –
“If you have this information then you know what are the things that need to change in order to build the infrastructure so that people can have a healthier life!”
