Join us for a day of sharing new research from around Australia.
Our keynote speaker should not be missed:
Professor Robin M. Daly

Practical exercise prescription for the prevention of osteoporosis and fractures
Exercise is the only strategy that can concurrently affect all fracture parameters if it is appropriately prescribed. It is evident from the available literature that the effects of exercise are modality and dose-dependent. This presentation will review the latest evidence with regard to the optimal type and dose of exercise to prevent osteoporosis and fractures, and discuss strategies to implement best practice, evidence-based programs into the community.
Effective exercise and nutritional strategies to prevent and manage sarcopenia and falls
Robin will discuss the effects of progressive resistance training (PRT) and review the latest evidence with regard to the type and dose of exercise in order to prevent and manage sarcopenia and falls. Evidence-based nutritional approaches focusing on treatment with dietary protein and vitamin D, and the combination of exercise and nutrition to enhance physical health will also be reviewed.
