#PreventionWorksLIVE is a masterclass series with Australia’s leading innovators on creating a healthier Australia. The series, hosted by The Australian Prevention Partnership Centre, examines how change-makers have achieved real impact for the health and wellbeing of communities.
Prevention is better than cure but preventing poor health and disease is harder than it sounds. So how do we get prevention on the political agenda? How do we get urban planners and governments thinking about liveability? How do we improve our food system? #PreventionWorksLIVE sets the conversation and leads the dialogue in the prevention of chronic disease.
