Professor Barbara Riegel is the Edith Clemmer Steinbright Professor of Gerontology at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Nursing and Co-editor of the Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing. Professor Riegel is an established nurse scientist studying adults with cardiovascular disease. Her primary research interest is self-care of older adults with chronic heart failure. This interest in self-care grew out of her early years as a Clinical Nurse Researcher at Sharp HealthCare in San Diego, California, where she led several studies testing methods of transitioning chronically ill patients from hospital to home. Her work in self-care and disease management has been cited widely and used to support programs of care internationally.

Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research
Dr Yih Kai Chan is a research fellow at the Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research, Australian Catholic University. He has over 10 years of academic teaching, clinical and scientific experience across the full spectrum of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity research. He currently leads the clinical data management group and works in an integrated portfolio of studies designed to develop, test and apply innovative, cost-effective health interventions to address the current gaps in our ability to prevent, detect and manage cardiovascular disease, obesity and associated metabolic disorders. He has published more than 40 peer-reviewed papers in prestigious international journals including the Lancet, BMJ, European Heart Journal and Circulation and is a regular presenter at National/International cardiology conferences.

Nat Sch Exercise Science
I am an exercise physiologist whose research, clinical, and teaching career has focused on the integration of exercise, medicine and behaviour change as a means to improve quality of life, particularly among older adults and in clinical populations. I am interested in functional, cardiometabolic, and vascular outcomes in a variety of populations.

My research focus is on exercise for people with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Currently I am investigating the response of blood glucose and microcirculation to whole body vibration exercise. I am also supervising HDR students examining training loads for team sports, and motion analysis of the Olympic and kettlebell snatch lifts.

Shawn Somerset leads the national program in public health at Australian Catholic University. He has tertiary qualifications in Nutrition and in Infectious Disease Immunology. He has worked in government, industry and university sectors on food and nutrition-related projects in Australia, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. His general field of interest relates to how the world is fed, the various controls, barriers and facilitators involved, and how the expanding world population will find food into the future. Answers to these issues span a range of research contexts, from clinical investigations into the impact of various diets on health and disease, through to population-based studies on determinants of food consumption a?? issues that are central across the world, in countries both rich and poor.
