HiPPP EMR-C

About


The HiPPP EMR-C was formed in 2019 by a national group of early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs) and mentors who have united to meet the dual needs of collective action in maternal obesity prevention and capacity building in early and mid-career researchers.

HiPPP EMR-C is led by an active and diverse multidisciplinary team of EMCRs, with the support and mentorship from leading experts in their respective fields, spanning research, practice, policy and advocacy.

We are collectively focused on improving maternal obesity and related outcomes through research that recognises both maternal and paternal wellbeing and impact on offspring outcomes.

Our purpose is to create opportunities for EMCRs to build capacity, form collaborations, transcend discipline and sector-based silos, and generate impact across research, policy, and practice in the HiPPP field. We meet regularly to progress the HiPPP EMR-C goals and purpose, including hosting a yearly conference.

We welcome new members, including expanding our diversity, and have a goal to broaden internationally. Membership enquiries can be made via our online form
