The University of Queensland Centre for Community Health and Wellbeing has been active in Springfield since March 2023.

The Centre is made up of researchers, professional staff, and students – who work together on their vision of creating happy, healthy communities.

The Centre values working with community members in research and decision making, creating genuine community engagement and partnerships, and exceeding world standards of quality research.

Led by Professor Lauren Ball, the Centre is purposefully situated in the heart of Springfield, in the Springfield Tower.

This location is important to enable community members to share their experiences, help design research programs, test out new interventions, and learn about the latest discoveries in health.

Some examples of work being done by the team include using community science to develop a digital map of Springfield health and wellbeing services, helping people with chronic conditions navigate the health system, and advancing the accessibility of health services for multicultural and priority populations.
