• Physio Julia Allan travels with Victorian Fury to PNG

    The charity organisation Water Aid Australia has recently begun a campaign to deliver access to clean drinking water and sanitation to many more villages across Papua New Guinea due to almost 4 million people not having access and many people dying from diseases such as Diarrhea.

    To help promote the campaign and raise the awareness of women's health in particular, Water Aid launched its campaign by using sport to help deliver the message. Netball was chosen to help show how strong females can be and the importance of good clean drinking water. A Tri-Series tournament was organised and I travelled with the Victorian Fury netball side who competed against Singapore and Papua New Guinea in Port Moresby.

    The tournament was a great chance for the Fury players to prepare for the 2016 Australian Netball League season as well as support a fantastic project that works to empower women and improve necessities such as clean drinking water and sanitation. All the players and support staff were honored to be involved in such a great cause.

    In regards to the matches we also had success on this front as well with a win against Singapore and then a win against Papua New Guinea on International Women's Day with the score line ending 64-35.

    Working with the Under 17 Victorian side as their physiotherapist was an absolute privilege with such a talented and fun group of girls. A team of 12 was selected last October with some players travelling from regional Victoria up to 3 hours away to train every weekend.

  • Julia Allan on the road with Drake

    Physiotherapy work certainly takes you to interesting places. Over the past week one of our physio's Julia Allan worked with Canadian hip-hop superstar "Drake", while he performed in Australia. Drake toured around Australia for the first time over the past 10 days performing headline shows in Australia and New Zealand as well as performing as the Headline show for Future Music Festival. He has completed some top hit collaborations with other well known artists including Beyonce, Jay Z, Rhianna and Kanye West and only last month scored his 72nd Billboard Hot 100 entry - overtaking The Beatles.

    Working as Drake's physiotherapist definitely included some perks where Julia was able to watch the show from the VIP front of stage area with 2 friends whilst he was performing at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne. From all reports he was lovely to work with
