Abstract/Summary Research is the act of discovering things. The question can therefore be asked: ‘What discoveries will help us develop and sustain healthy communities?’ One way to address this question is to begin by identifying the major community concerns about health and wellbeing. The findings from a community forum which addressed this question form the main part of this report. The purpose of the forum was to involve organisations and community leaders at the start of establishing a research agenda.

Additional Notes The Healthy Communities Research Centre has begun to identify signifcant health and wellness concerns for its research agenda. Its research program should be relevant and valuable to communities in the City of Ipswich and surrounding regions as well as having international significance. The Centre needs a process for involving a wide cross section of the community and the University in the development of its research agenda.
