Justin Coleman GP MPH is a man of many talents.  He is a GP who works in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health in Brisbane and is a writer who looks sceptically at health interventions where the evidence suggests they might not actually be worthwhile. This is part of his broader interest in the public health concept of equity – fair access to primary health care for everyone.

He was President of the Australasian Medical Writers Association (AMWA) from 2010-15. He has published more than a thousand articles in around 40 Australian and international newspapers, magazines and journals. He is the author of four book chapters and three regular newspaper columns. He is also Editor of the Diabetes Management Journal and Senior Lecturer at the University of QLD and Griffith University.  In 2014, Justin founded a campaign which encouraged doctors to avoid seeing visiting pharmaceutical representatives at their surgeries called the No Advertising Please campaign
