Review: An independent public health and advocacy unit based within Curtin University.  The unit aims to raise the public profile and understanding of public health, develop networks within local communities and create a state-wide umbrella organisation capable of influencing public health policy and political agendas. Knowledge transfer activities engaged by the unit help to make complicated research and project findings user-friendly and relevant using a myriad of health promotion techniques. Alcohol education and Aboriginal health are priority areas with additional resources and links to national data, research and statistics made freely available. A great site for Community Studies secondary students, Public Health tertiary students, and professionals working in the public health sector with a focus on community policy and politicians.
