Western Alliance Research Fellow receives SPINIFEX funding boost

Our Western Alliance Research Fellow and recently awarded Heart Foundation Fellow, Dr Laura Alston (Colac Area Health, Deakin University), has been awarded funding from the SPINIFEX network to undertake a Rural Health Rapid Review.

Spinifex is a national collaborative network aimed at achieving equitable funding for rural and regional health research. Laura’s review, entitled ‘A review of evidence on interventions to improve the availability and promotion of healthy food in rural communities’, will form part of a series which aims to improve the health of rural, regional and remote living Australians by undertaking focused research and implementing evidence-based policies and practices.
