‘Alive and Kicking’ Podcast Series

The podcasts of our chats with members of the Cardiac and Vascular Health, Age and Ageing, and Maternal, Newborn and Women's Clinical Academic Groups (CAG).

Five students at the University of Technology, Sydney studying the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation have teamed up with Maridulu Budyari Gumal - the Sydney Partnership for Health, Education, Research and Enterprise (SPHERE) Knowledge Translation (KT) team to meet a brief given to us regarding the promotion of KT’s effects to the broader public. Consequently, we decided to create a platform in the format of a Podcast series called 'Alive and Kicking' with the common theme of busting myths as a draw in for audiences whilst emphasising SPHERE as a go to place for trustworthy health related information. We spoke with members of the Cardiac and Vascular Health CAG, Age and Ageing CAG, and Maternal, Newborn and Women's CAG highlighting the amazing research underway and discussing the risk and preventative factors for various health issues to empower individuals to take charge of their health.

We also added some new posts to the SPHERE | In The Know instagram page increasing its followers and levels of engagement. The page can be found at the handle @sphereintheknow.
