Olaf Werder

University of Sydney
Degree Director Health Communication, Lecturer
Sydney, Australia
With degrees in promotion, communication studies and higher-
degree education I currently hold a lectureship and directorship in health
communication at the Media and Communications Department of the Uni-
versity of Sydney after having held similar positions at the University of
Florida and the University of New Mexico in the USA. Prior to my academic
appointment, I have worked in the communication industry on the media
and agency side in two countries for about ten years.
I am an affiliated researcher at the Charles Perkins Centre (the in-
terdisciplinary research collaborations surrounding obesity prevention),
where I lead a research group on health humanities research. I am also a
research network member on infectious disease prevention (SIBRN) and
sit on the advisory board of the International Health Humanities Network.
My motivation for this title is derived from my research interests in
social ecological modelling of message responses, community-based par-
ticipation research (CBPR), analysis of socio-cultural understanding of
health in population and media. My work focuses on identifying pathways
through which context, partnerships, and interventions lead to specific
system changes and health outcomes with an emphasis of community col-
laborative approaches.
