Changing behaviours for better health and preventing disease
Why this research:
Non-communicable diseases due to poor diet and obesity have a disproportionate affect on disadvantaged groups.
We evaluate the equity impact of our interventions (What does that mean?) and recruit volunteers for our research from a diverse range of communities.
Much of our research takes place in supermarkets, where we investigate the impact of approaches that influence what people buy.
