Dr. Katherine Cullerton is a Research Fellow in the School of Public Health at the University of Queensland. Katherine has extensive experience working in in a range of public health sectors and settings in Australia and in the UK. Her current research focuses on why evidence doesn’t translate into policy and how advocates can better shape nutrition policy. We talk all things politics, politicians and public health nutrition and Katherine gives some great ideas on how we can all, as individuals, or as members of organizations easily advocate in our communities and what to look for when assessing policy commitments.
For further information, check out Katherine's researcher profile at the University of Queensland, especially the article titled 'Effective advocacy strategies for influencing government nutrition policy: a conceptual model' ; and Katherine's Twitter.
