The School of Allied Health, Human Services and Sport invites you to attend an oration with special guest speaker Professor Hylton Menz.

Oration title: Footprints of Experience: Navigating the Ageing Process Through Assessment of the Human Foot

Walking is essential to everyday life, and serves as a cornerstone of functionality and independence. Ageing makes this simple task increasingly difficult, which has implications for the autonomy of the older person. This oration examines how foot disorders contribute to this difficulty, and demonstrates how research into foot disorders can improve mobility and quality of life in the older population.
