Fulbright Postdoctoral Scholar & Exercise Physiologist

Dr David Mizrahi is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist at the University of New South Wales and Sydney Children’s Hospital. His research focuses on physical activity and physical fitness after treatment for childhood cancer as well as exercise during chemotherapy for relapsed ovarian cancer. His PhD involved assessing the acceptability of receiving an exercise physiology consultation among parents and survivors of childhood cancer. His work identifies which survivors are at increased risk of having low fitness and physical activity levels, to identify them early and promote behaviour change to minimise health risks in the clinic. He has presented his research locally and internationally, and has 6 publications. He has ongoing collaborations between clinicians and researchers in Australia and abroad to strengthen the link between institutions to advance the understanding of the field and develop the role of exercise for survivors of childhood cancer.
