Research Fellow

Biography

As a Research Fellow, Uday will explore the development of novel methods for early identification and management of chronic disease and CVD risk for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young adults through a community-based implementation study.

The intervention will be informed by the findings of the Study of Environment on Aboriginal Resilience and Child Health (SEARCH) and focus on early life course factors contributing to health and wellbeing, and secondary prevention of chronic disease.

A holistic intervention will be co-designed and implemented together with a health service and community focusing on CVD risk assessment and management for young adults.
