The team here at CONNI are excited to announce the winner of the 2017 Physio CONNI Award is Amy Lamb, an independent and passionate pelvic physiotherapist specialising in men’s, women’s and pelvic health from sunny Townsville.

Amy’s focuses on health concerns that tackle pelvic health including incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain, sexual dysfunction and post surgery (just to name a few).

Amy graduated from the University of Sydney in 2011 with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Physiotherapy and a Graduate Certificate in Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy in 2016 at the University of Melbourne.

In her role as a pelvic physiotherapist, Amy has spent three years working in the Northern Territory, where she developed a continence referral and outpatient prioritization system within both the Royal Darwin Hospital and Alice Springs Hospital.

Amy has also worked as a clinical educator for physiotherapy students and has run tutorials at James Cook University on continence management, and pelvic floor physiotherapy. With a passion for educating junior therapists, Amy actively seeks out opportunities to teach and spread the word on pelvic floor health.

And just in case that didn’t give you enough of a reason to think Amy is as awesome as we do, she is also the co-coordinator and creator of a continence and pelvic floor physiotherapy journal club. In this group, which Amy has run regularly throughout 2017, she has gathered other continence professionals together to discuss the latest evidence and advancements in the area and constantly keeps herself informed and up to date with anything pelvic-related.

We are so excited to offer Amy flights, accommodation and registration to attend the 48th Annual Meeting of the International Continence Society in Philadelphia, USA. Congrats Amy!
