SERVICE TO THE UNIVERSITY:

Helen is a member of the Editorial Board, Early Childhood Development and Care (2010-)
Helen has worked with many organisations, such as Mind Exercise Nutrition Do it! (MEND 2-4 years), Berry Street, WestCare Salvation Army, CatholicCare, Wesley Mission,  MacKillop, Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, Victorian Department of Health and Humans Services, Early Childhood Management Services, Football Federation Victoria, and bestchance Child Family Care, to increase her connections to the “real world” and conduct the applied research that is needed to provide the evidence base for fostering the health and wellbeing of children, parents and families. In relation to health benefits, these industry-partnered research projects are ‘solution-oriented’ rather than ‘problem-oriented’, with the latter, of course, several steps away from being translated into health gains.
