Do we look for the health messages?

ILWS researchers are investigating what rural and regional Australians know about common, everyday health risks and activities. “Health authorities across Australia are constantly sending out messages to help Australians make better health choices. But residents in Australia’s rural areas have been shown to have greater trouble understanding health messages than people in metropolitan areas,” said project coordinator Dr Andrea Crampton. The researchers are seeking metropolitan and rural participants to undertake an online survey here. “We want to see what people actually know about common activities that might pose short and longterm health risks.” For more information on the survey, call Dr Andrea Crampton at the Faculty of Science on (02) 6933 4032
