Morning Health Chat

Friday 14th June 2019

8:15am – 1:30pm

Lunch and morning tea provided.

Dr Ian Curley (Consultant Surgeon), Mr Craig Allingham (Elite Sport Physiotherapist, author and acclaimed speaker) and Associate Professor Chris Askew (leading academic researching impact of exercise on chronic disease) have volunteered their services to spend time with us at the Men’s Health Chat morning.

  Dr Ian Curley is an internationally trained consultant general and laparoscopic surgeon specialising in colorectal, endocrine and breast cancer surgery, and endoscopy. Dr Curley will provide insights into his work and outcomes for people living with particular kinds of cancer. 
 Craig Allingham has developed a deep interest in supporting men who are living with Prostate Cancer and has authored two books on this topic. His entertaining and engaging style results in an easy to listen to and valuable talk for all men and their partners. Craig will be talking on prostate health and strategies to keep it healthy. His book will be available at the Shed.
Craig notes that…This book outlines my five level plan for maximising recovery following prostate surgery. This book provides a total package for men looking for practical guidance and real life advice.
  Assoc Prof Chris Askew (University of Sunshine Coast) has research interests that include:
Effects of exercise therapy and physical activity on cardiovascular function and health in older adults and those with chronic disease… and in fact, members of the NMS have been subjects in some of his research projects.  Chris is a member of the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence for Peripheral Arterial Diseases (NCRE-PAD), and he collaborates closely with leading research groups in Australia and internationally. His presentation will be of interest to many members and their partners.
