Aquero Lecture Series reminder

The Aquero Lecture Series from the Faculty of Health Sciences honours the Catholic intellectual tradition by inspiring progressive dialogue towards principled leadership, in a global health paradigm that is constantly changing.

This Thursday 18 April, we welcome the first Aquero lecture of 2024, presented by the SPRINT Research Centre in collaboration with the Mary MacKillop Institute of Health Research., divulging the lessons learned from 50 years working with elite athletes.

You are what you eat and how you sleep!

Optimal sleep and nutrition are two of the most critical contributors to elite athlete performance.

While athletes are often considered at the extreme of human performance, research in nutrition and sleep in athletes can provide valuable lessons for optimising and enhancing our own health and wellbeing.

Join Professor Shona Halson and Professor Louise Burke as they discuss how sleep benefits physical and mental health, follow a case study of an elite athlete and how they achieved beneficial changes to their body composition.

On conclusion, they will unveil the newest addition to the ACU Health Precinct – the ACU human metabolic chamber.
