DipAppScNat(AcadNatTher), GradDipSc(Otago University), PhD(SCU)
Sonya's doctoral project was a large, national study that examined dietary supplement utilisation, nutritional risk and physical activity patterns in older Australians. This work gave rise to several publications in peer-reviewed journals, and she is now recognised as an expert in the field of complementary medicines usage in the older age group. She has contributed a chapter about older peoples' use of supplements for an international book about nutrition and ageing.
As her resume shows her interest in older people extends beyond just their supplement usage. She has published, and given public presentations, on a broad range of topics concerning the health and wellbeing of older people. Sonya is dedicated to promoting healthy ageing as an attainable goal for older Australians.
