#17 Dr Jillian Eyles | Combating A Major World Issue In Osteoarthritis
How are we combating the major world issue of osteoarthritis?
In episode 17 of HPG Engage, we sit down with Dr Jillian Eyles, BAppSc Physiotherapy, Doctor of Philosophy and Research Fellow at Kolling Institute of Medical Research.
We delve into her career, right from the beginning when she was heavily involved in spinal cord injury, how she began her research in Osteoarthritis and the importance of bridging the gap between GPs and newfound research.
We cover the need and importance of philanthropy.
Just like many others, the process of medical research can be difficult and there can also be many barriers to success, one of those being lack of funding. The North Foundation plays an important role in assisting Reach Fellows like Dr Jillian Eyles in raising money for their research.

#16 Professor Manuela Ferreira | Education Is Integral In Battling Chronic Back Pain
WELCOME BACK WITH ANOTHER EPISODE OF HPG ENGAGE.
On today's podcast, we speak with Professor Manuela Ferreira, a Professor of Musculoskeletal Health, NHMRC Leader Fellow.
In this episode, we delve into Professor Ferreira's career. Going all the way back to her childhood and what led her to study physiotherapy in Brazil and then eventually move to Sydney to continue her studies.
Professor Ferreira specialises in the research of Chronic Back Pain and in this episode we speak about her research, surgical trials, and what we can do on a day to day to improve our health.
With everything in life, there are always roadblocks and challenges so it was also important for us to speak about the experiences of being a woman in research as well as the need for funding in order for research to continue.
