Dr Christopher Lawrence, Lecturer/Research Fellow, Indigenous Health Equity Unit, Centre for Health Equity, Melbourne School of Population and Global Health

Dr Lawrence’s presentation will describe the association between psychological distress and dietary patterns among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participants in the New South Wales 45 and Up Study. National population health surveys about psychological distress and diet among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians report that these groups are twice more likely than other Australians to experience very high levels of psychological distress, poorer diets and a heavy burden of chronic disease. This study is a chapter in his PhD.
