Dr Alice Grady is a Heart Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Newcastle, and a Program Manager at Hunter New England Population Health. Her research aims to prevent chronic disease by putting robust evidence into practice within healthcare and community settings, including early childhood education and care.

Alice manages an integrated research–practice team to both deliver and evaluate evidence-based healthy eating and physical activity interventions to centre-based and family day care early childhood education and care services. She has a particular interest in using innovative technologies, such as web-based programs, to put evidence into practice in a way that is effective, sustainable and can be scaled up to the benefit of the population.
