Professor Gavin Turrell is a Social Epidemiologist whose research focuses on the Social Determinants of Health and Health Inequities. In 2000, Gavin established the Australian Health Inequities Research Program (AHIRP). AHIRPs vision is "A socioeconomically just Australian society, without health inequity", and its mission is "To conduct research that is directed at improving the environmental, social, and economic conditions that give rise to good health, and to counter those conditions that generate poor health". His research is primarily population-based and much of it examines how the neighbourhood environment interacts with individual-level factors to influence health and related behaviours and risk factors. Gavin is a Chief Investigator on an NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in Healthy, Liveable, and Equitable Communities, where he leading a research program examining whether the neighbourhood built environment is causally related to health and well-being. Gavin and his collaborators, including Research Fellows, PhD and Masters students, are investigating topics such as ethnicity and health, Indigenous status and diabetic foot disease, neighbourhood disadvantage and physical function, socioeconomic position and physical activity, neighbourhood environment and walking, transport and health, and neighbourhoods and mental health (among others). Gavin's work is increasingly focusing on ways to reduce health inequities through urban design, public policy, health policy, health promotion, and other intervention strategies.
