My name is Daniel Reeders, and I have been working in health promotion for over a decade.  I learned health promotion on the job, through an informal but in-depth apprenticeship, and this left me with a fierce appreciation of working knowledge and reflective practice. My qualifications are a BA and LLB from the University of Melbourne and a Grad Dip in Public Health from Flinders University.

My career has involved research and practice in social marketing and communication strategy around health issues like HIV, cancer screening and sexual and reproductive health. I’m also known for innovative community-based and academic research projects focusing on neglected and emerging areas of practice. I have worked for the Victorian AIDS Council, Cancer Council Victoria, the Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health, the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society, the Centre for Social Impact, and the National Association of People with HIV Australia.

I’m currently studying in the PhD program at the ANU School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet).
