Professor Tania Winzenberg is Professor of Chronic Disease Management at the University of Tasmania. She has a major research focus on musculoskeletal conditions, particularly in children and younger adults. This is combined with an interest in bringing a primary care perspective to the prevention and management of chronic disease. Her work on musculoskeletal health is published in top general (BMJ, JAMA), bone and arthritis journals. Her contribution to osteoarthritis research was acknowledged as part of the team for one of NHMRC’s “10 of the Best Research Projects for 2013”, for an RCT of zoledronic acid for osteoarthritis. Prof Wiznzenberg also received the 2007 Australian and New Zealand Bone and Mineral Society (ANZBMS) top award, the Kaye Ibbertson Award for her work on improving bone health in younger populations, as well as the 2017 Royal Australian College of GPs (RACGP) Peter Mudge Medal awarded to recognise both the potential of her work to influence practice and her contribution to general practice research.
