The team at Rise Health Group pride themselves on taking an evidence-based approach to the treatment and management of our patients. Therefore, the Exercise Science and Exercise Physiology team at Rise Health Group have teamed up with Deakin University’s School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences to collaborate on a variety of projects. With this approach in mind, Rise Health Group have taken on course advisory roles within the University to both inspire and encourage future Exercise Scientists and Exercise Physiologists to take an evidence-lead approach to assessing, treating and managing their patients.
Rise Health Group’s Matt Pollard is currently teaching within the University, whilst Exercise Physiologists Keegan Ziada, Zoe Ruth and Thomas Lariba-Taing work closely with Deakin University students through mentoring them in the field. Our internship program is designed to create first-hand experience for students by allowing them to apply their knowledge with athletes and patients under the guidance of our exercise team.
“We are very excited to formalise our partnership with such a prestigious University. We look forward to continuing to explore opportunities to continue to work together for the betterment of the health and high performance industries,” said Matt Pollard when he was asked about the partnership.
With the impressive students that we have seen come through our internship program, such as our very own Exercise Physiologist Zoe Ruth, we are proud to be working in such close proximity with students at Deakin University.
With this partnership, moving forward Rise Health will be implementing and contributing to the newest and latest exercise research across all practitioners to ensure that our patients are receiving the best treatment possible.
