Professor, Edith Cowan University
Professor Devine has focused on high quality randomised controlled trials to better understand how diet affects bone and vascular health. Currently her research activities include state-wide food literacy in adults and children, systems change to improve food security, and the influence of plant based diets on vascular, gestational diabetes, ulcerative colitis, gut and mental health. She has particular interest in improving mental health outcomes for first responders, using a whole of system approach, that includes levels of government, community, and the health system. These sectors need to work with universities to train and support the workforce and their families.
