Jodi is a Health Economics Fellow within the School of Public Health at the University of Adelaide. She has previously worked on the Primary Care Services Improvement Project, which examined the involvement of practice nurses in the management of patients with obesity, diabetes or depression within general practice. 

Jodi is currently coordinating the Pilot Study of the Counterweight Program, which examined the feasibility and acceptability of the Counterweight weight management program to Australian general practices and patients.  Jodi is also involved in the economic analysis of the Preventative Evidence into Practice (PEP) study. 

As part of a recently completed Master of Public Health at the University of Adelaide, Jodi explored the lived experiences of patients enrolled in the Counterweight Program, including the story of their weight and their experience with the program. This improved our understanding of how the Counterweight Program fitted with patients’ experiences, and their existing knowledge and beliefs.
