Improve your wellbeing in 2021



Following the success of 'Nutrition and Healthy Eating in 2021', the Wellbeing Committee has announced details of the next three webinars in its Eat, Sleep, Move program.

  • The Benefits of Sleep, Thursday, 4 February 2021, presented by Professor Sharon Naismith, a clinical neuropsychologist, National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Dementia Leadership Fellow and holder of the Leonard P Ullman Chair in Psychology at the University of Sydney. Sharon also heads the Healthy Brain Ageing Program at the Brain and Mind Centre, a one-of-its-kind early intervention research clinic for dementia. Her work focuses on modifiable risk factors for dementia and clinical interventions for early cognitive decline, including cognitive training, depression, sleep-wake, dietary, e-health and pharmacological interventions.

  • Resistance Training, Thursday, 11 February 2021, presented by Professor Fiatarone-Singh, a geriatrician whose research, clinical and teaching career has focused on the integration of medicine, exercise physiology and nutrition as a means to improve health status and quality of life across the lifespan. Maria has held the inaugural John Sutton Chair of Exercise and Sport Science in the Faculty of Health Sciences, and Professorship, Sydney Medical School, at the University of Sydney since 1999.

  • Key Moves, Thursday, 18 February 2021, presented by Josephine Key, an author, mentor and practising neuromuscular-skeletal physiotherapist. Josephine has over 40 years of clinical experience and 30 years as the principal physiotherapist at Edgecliff Physiotherapy Sports and Spinal Centre. Her passion for bodies, their optimal function and how dysfunction drives pain states, underpins her work. Josephine’s treatment approach distils the complex academic evidence, but enhances it with practical approaches inspired from multiple eastern and western manual and movement disciplines. She has refined this knowledge and developed a simple classification system which can be used to guide treatment approaches – The Key Approach. This is explained in her book: Back Pain: A Movement Problem. Josephine has a particular interest in the nature of movement – understanding what constitutes natural healthy control and the relationship between altered axial posturomovement control and many pain disorders – in particular those relating to the spine.
