Dr Jo George at PSANZ2019.

Working as a clinical paediatric physiotherapist (Queensland Paediatric Rehabilitation Services) and research fellow (The University of Queensland), Dr George was recognised for her work on PPREMO project, which uses the ability of very early MRI and early clinical measures of motor, neurological and neurobehavioural function to identify infants at high risk of adverse motor outcomes following very premature birth. Jo also focuses on developing and implementing the state-wide Qld Early Detection and Intervention Network (QEDIN), for children at risk of Cerebral Palsy. The ultimate vision of QEDIN-CP is to improve the health and wellbeing of children with CP and their families through early detection and provision of early intervention.
