Centre Interns Complete at Dissemination Day

The Arthritis Research UK Centre for Sport, Exercise and Osteoarthritis summer interns completed their 8 week programme with a Dissemination Day on Friday 18 August at the University of Nottingham.

The six interns have been working from one of the Centre’s institutions, each completing a small research project. They each came to the Dissemination Day with very different experiences and those in attendance thoroughly enjoyed listening to their summary presentations.

Emma Hamilton: The Jockey Study (supervised by Maria Sanchez at University of Oxford)

Ellie Carter: Management Adaptation in Response to Pain (supervised by Dr Ezio Preatoni and Dr Carly McKay at University of Bath)

Jerneja Uhan: What is the Prevalence of Foot Pain taken from a General Population in Nottingham? (supervised by Dr Lucy Gates and Prof Cathy Bowen at University of Southampton)

Kerry Brown: The Effect of Biologic Therapy on Activity Levels and Biomarkers in the Feet of People with Rheumatoid Arthritis (supervised by Prof Cathy Bowen at University of Southampton)

Amy Curran: Investigating the use of YouTube in the Self-Management of Osteoarthritis (supervised by Prof Jo Adams at University of Southampton)

Claire George: The Impact of Cricket on Health: A Scoping Review (supervised by Dr Stephanie Filbay at University of Oxford)

As in previous years, the Centre interns will continue to receive regular updates from the Centre and be invited to attend Centre events. We encourage them to remain active within the Centre and for them to become mentors for future years’ schemes.

Congratulations to all the interns for completing the scheme. Everyone at the Centre wishes you the very best of luck in your future endeavours.
