The Centre Welcomes Visiting Endeavour Fellow – Dr Cindy Forbes

cindy forbesThe Centre welcomes Dr Cindy Forbes, who is an Endeavour Research Fellow from Dalhousie University in Canada.

Come July, Dr. Forbes will be working with Dr. Camille Short and the team at the Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men’s Health to develop and evaluate an on-line exercise prescription support tool for men with metastatic prostate cancer.

Cindy is an Early Career Researcher, who along with Dr Short have a background in exercise oncology and an interest in developing lifestyle behaviour change programs delivered using online technology. This prestigious Fellowship which is highly competitive, gives them the opportunity to progress their shared interests, pool resources and forge a stronger cross-institutional international collaboration, of which all parties stand to benefit. Given the comparable burden of prostate cancer between the two countries, the program to be developed for Australian men would be easily adapted for regional (Atlantic Canada) and Canada-wide.

The Endeavour Scholarships and Fellowships are the Australian Government’s competitive, merit-based scholarships and fellowships providing opportunities for Australians to undertake study, research or professional development overseas and for overseas citizens to do the same in Australia.
