Jeffrey Rufila, GRx Rising-Star 2020
“Three years ago, I took my first university placement student under my supervision & guidance. Sure, I thought I knew my stuff well enough but, this was a greater opportunity to further my understanding, as well as be an impactful leader for those seeking the right questions and answers to the uncertainties of healthcare or just navigating through life in general.”
We are thrilled to announce Jeff Rufila, exercise physiologist and mentor, as one of this year’s GRx Rising-Stars of 2020. Already well respected in exercise physiology, Jeff is ready to make an impact on the wider allied health community. A deserving winner!
Jeff is passionate about education and making a meaningful change in other people’s lives. With his love for teaching, particularly communication, he has recently started a mentorship program to help tertiary students and young practitioners develop, and ‘become the best health professionals and leaders they can be’.
Through his public speaking and podcast, he enjoys empowering people to become more courageous and to take action. Jeff loves nothing more than to learn ‘from those more experienced and knowledgeable.’ Last year, he was fortunate enough to be chosen to present at Royal North Shore Hospital, and this year he released his first eBook, ‘Communicating Pain’.
Jeff loves expanding his professional network and meeting new people. The Running EP Podcast is now into its 15th episode. He loves sharing other’s experiences, and truly believes in the power of human connection. As an exercise physiologist, he says ‘being a part of one’s journey for the better is something that brings me fulfilment and happiness.”
“To be recognised as a rising-star of GrowthRx it would mean one thing… Opportunity. An opportunity to be on a platform to continue spreading my message, impact people, and help move the health industry forward. Ultimately, lead a health community of practitioners who are empathetic, courageous, critical-thinkers and who strive to be the change the world needs.”
