Research making strides

The Royal Hobart Hospital (RHH) Research Foundation’s Research Matters program returned for its 2024 series at the St Lukes Wellness Hub in Hobart.

The free series aligned with multiple global awareness days across Kidney Health Week, Pain Week, Stroke Week and Women’s Health Week.

It featured key insights from leading industry experts who shared groundbreaking research findings, prevention strategies and the latest in cutting-edge treatments.

“These seminars are vital for showcasing the significant strides our research funding is making in Tasmania,” RHH Research Foundation interim chief executive officer John Stubley said.

“They highlight the important work being done and the impact it has on our community’s health.”

Southern region customer care manager Kate Denmen said St Lukes was thrilled to once again work with the foundation to bring crucial discussion on health research to the community.

“Hosting Research Matters at our Wellness Hub allows us to engage directly with the public, provide them with key insights into health issues that affect us all and further our vision to make Tasmania the healthiest island on the planet,” she said.

RHH Research Foundation scientific advisory committee chair Rosemary Harrup said she was excited for the return of the Research matters series.

“This event gives our researchers a vital platform to present their latest projects and engage with the community, enhancing the visibility of our work and its potential to better patient outcomes,” she said.
