Biography

Dr Suzanne Carroll is Assistant Professor in Public Health at the University of Canberra. Suzanne's research explores the determinants underlying spatial and social inequalities in health. Health is unevenly distributed across regions, and between populations groups and social strata. This may be due to uneven distributions of health-related resources but also differences in health-related beliefs and attitudes. Suzanne's interests are in improving understanding of the multiple inter-related influences, environmental and social, that drive or constrain health behaviour and outcomes. It is essential to understand such influences in order to inform targeted interventions that reduce disparities in population health.
