Dr Julie Brimblecombe - Remote Food Security & Community Leadership

Dr Julie Brimblecombe - Remote Food Security & Community Leadership

In this episode, listen in to a rich conversation with Dr Julie Brimblecombe for warm and deep insights into the current state of remote food insecurity and to hear good news stories from remote communities and remote food stores who are tackling food insecurity and diet related chronic disease in innovative – and world leading – ways.

Julie is widely admired and much loved for her contributions  - over many years - in the fields of remote food security and nutrition research, policy advocacy and community led, co-designed healthy food solutions, particularly with remote communities and food stores.  

She is currently the Associate Professor of Public Health Nutrition in the Department of Nutrition, Dietetics and Food, at Monash University in Melbourne and she maintains a very close relationship with the Menzies School of Health Research at Charles Darwin University where she was a senior research leader for many years and now an Honorary Fellow.

 Julie has worked cross-culturally in the South Pacific and with remote Northern Territory Aboriginal communities, especially in Arnhem Land, for over 20 years – and it’s the story of her work with remote food  stores and communities to research and to help foster world leading community based solutions to tackle healthy food and food security challenges that we discuss in this Episode.  

Below are links to some of the great research programs and outcomes from them that Julie has lead and helped deliver that she discusses in this episode.
