New committee for the PPA

A new committee were elected at the PPA AGM on 3rd February 2023. A number of officers stepped down and we welcomed new members. 

Huge thanks to all the committee members who have made such an impact during their terms.

The committee wishes to extend a special thanks to Diarmuid Denneny who stepped down as chair for his inspirational leadership and Prof Cormac Ryan who has been Editor-in-chief of Pain and Rehabilitation, the journal of the Physiotherapy Pain Association for 10 years. Thank you to the Student and Early Career Reps Jake Webster and Sagar Vedpathak who have completed their terms. We hope you will all continue to support and champion the PPA as you have done throughout your tenure. 

The PPA has a new chair! Jackie Walumbe has been co-chair for the past year and will be supported by Clair Jacobs who is vice chair and co-education officer with Claire Campbell. Leila Heelas has been elected to co-research officer and Elsje De Villiers will take on Leila's previous role of British Pain Society Liaison Officer.
