We delve into her career, right from the beginning when she was heavily involved in spinal cord injury, how she began her research in Osteoarthritis and the importance of bridging the gap between GPs and newfound research.
Osteoarthritis is in The Global Burden of Diseases' Top 10. So why isn't osteoarthritis, talked about more? Why doesn't it seem to have as much media attention? What are the barriers when it comes to the continuation of the research?
We cover the need and importance of philanthropy.
Just like many others, the process of medical research can be difficult and there can also be many barriers to success, one of those being lack of funding. The North Foundation plays an important role in assisting Reach Fellows like Dr Jillian Eyles in raising money for their research.
