We dive into the diverse background of Sam and her professional projects, including her path from a bachelors degree in exercise science to completing her PhD thesis. We discuss Sam’s research “Gait performance in residential aged care and the benefits of exercise”, winning the Emerging Researcher in Ageing (ERA) international scholarship for 2017, her international experience studying group exercise and gait metrics in older adults, and how to create a healthy, more sustainable community.
“They’ve lived for so long already, why not treat them as they are and reward them for living so long and being able to exercise, to walk, and talk, and do everything else like other human beings.” Sam on the importance of providing care for older adults
