It’s something of a cliché to call someone a “tireless and fearless” campaigner for public health. But in the case of Dr Ken Harvey, the cliché fits.
Harvey invests so much time and effort in campaigning against dodgy products and marketing that I’m not sure if he could have much time for sleeping.
He is in need of a bit more than sleep just at the moment, however, as he is facing legal action related to his complaints about the promotion of a weight-loss product by SensaSlim Australia.
Harvey is an adjunct senior lecturer in the School of Public Health at La Trobe University. I presume this means he is not formally a staff member and thus is unlikely to receive much legal or structural backup from the university.
