A/Prof Belinda Parmenter is the Head of UNSW Lifestyle Clinic, located at the School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Medicine & Health. Belinda is the E/MCR Co-Chair of the SPHERE Cardiac and Vascular Health Clinical Academic Group and a member of the UNSW Medicine and Health Cardiac, Vascular and Metabolic Medicine Steering Committee, as well as the Health Systems Research Theme Executive Committee.  She is also the co-founder and national co-chair of the Australian Cardiovascular Alliance (ACvA) Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Working Group. Belinda is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) with over 25 years of clinical experience prescribing and delivering exercise for patients with cardiovascular disease. Her experience includes specialising in the assessment, prescription, implementation and supervision of exercise for patients with PAD. Her PhD investigated the use of high-intensity progressive resistance training for patients with intermittent claudication from PAD, for which she was awarded the Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA) Medal for the most outstanding thesis in the field of Exercise and Sports Science. Belinda is an invited member of the NHMRC-funded National Centre for Research Excellence for PAD and continues her research in this field with a primary interest in the effect of cardiovascular disease on aerobic capacity and muscle strength and endurance, as well as the effect of exercise on reducing symptoms from and risk of cardiovascular disease across the lifespan. Some of her current projects include investigating ways to improve regular incidental physical activity and to promote continued participation in sports across adolescence and into adulthood. She is currently working with the Matilda Centre at Sydney University on developing eHealth intervention programs for adolescents to increase physical activity levels and reduce sedentary behaviour and developing similar programs for adult populations. She continues to investigate optimal exercise prescriptions for the amelioration of cardiovascular risk (metabolic syndrome), as well as for the treatment of peripheral artery disease.

My Teaching

Course Convenor: HESC3504 Physical Activity and Health 

Bachelor of Exercise Physiology

Course Outline: The focus of this course is on the effects of exercise on apparently healthy populations and those with increased cardiovascular risk across the lifespan. Psychological aspects of exercise, including the application of behaviour change and self-management strategies, comprise a significant component of this course. The literature addressing the impact of physical activity on cardiovascular risk reduction and the prevention of disease will be discussed in detail by examining the mechanisms by which exercise alters metabolic, vascular, muscular and cognitive function, both chronically and acutely. Health-based screening and intervention techniques (including basic nutrition assessments) will be applied with students undertaking a supervised lifestyle change project.
