Volunteer your time: Help our physio students shape up

Macquarie’s Doctor of Physiotherapy Health and Wellbeing Collaboration Program is seeking staff and adult community volunteers to take part in their March-June session.

What’s involved
Volunteers will meet with physiotherapy students regularly to discuss their (volunteers) condition, how it affects them and how they interact with the health care system.

Although no direct treatment is provided, students over time will perform assessments of mobility and balance which may provide valuable information to the volunteer, their family and caregivers.

Students may also use assessment findings to suggest exercise and physical activity programs which will be tailored to the volunteer’s health goals and needs.

Volunteer now.
