Luke Atkin is the Cessation, Partnerships and Priority Settings Manager at Quit Victoria.
He joined in the organisation in 2008 after completing a public health fellowship at the Victorian Department of Health and Latrobe University.
He has worked in a variety of health roles across government, research, policy and evaluation with a focus on those most at risk, which has shaped his commitment to improving health equality for disadvantaged Victorians.
