The Centre Management Group is very pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Camille Short to the position of Men’s Health Post-doctoral Research Fellow. Camille comes to us from the Institute for Health and Social Sciences Research at Central Queensland University in Rockhampton, Queensland.
Camille completed her PhD in Behavioural Science at the University of Newcastle, supervised by Professor Ronald Plotnikoff and Associate Professor Erica James. Only one year out of her PhD, Camille has developed an already very impressive track record. Her previous research encompassed the development and testing of behaviour change interventions targeted at specific population and patient groups within a public health framework. Camille’s research program will continue to focus on novel approaches to promoting physical activity and nutrition amongst males with a focus on web-based interventions, rural men’s health and health outcomes of men living with prostate cancer. ….Welcome Camille.
