3MT topic: The 21st century life: Are Baby Boomers healthier than Generation X?
Discipline: Public Health
Faculty: Health Sciences
Supervisors: A/Prof Anne Taylor, Prof Gary Wittert, Prof Graeme Hugo
My 3MT presentation explores the importance of tackling the health of Baby Boomers and Generation X as the rise in obesity and lifestyle chronic conditions is seeing our healthcare costs go up and our workforce capacity go down. As these generations form much of the working population of Australia, I am examining what effect the workplace has on health and the virtue of using the workplace as an environment in which we can intervene to make it easier for adults to be healthier.
