She has published articles on sexuality in accredited medical journals and participated in research for the treatment of male and female sexual function. She is on the executive committee of the Society for Australian Sexologists (SAS) and has full clinical accreditation from SAS as a Psychosexual Therapist and has held multiple executive positions in the Sexual Health field. Dr Redelman practices in Woolloomooloo, Sydney at The Male Clinic and works as a fertility physician in Bondi Junction.
As a Jodi Lee Foundation Young Ambassador, Hugo Toovey will address the important issue of early detection.In 2013, his life drastically changed when he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. This resulted in surgery to remove his testicle, months of chemotherapy, and very invasive surgery to remove all of his abdominal lymph nodes. In 2018 Hugo was diagnosed with bowel cancer. This resulted in weeks in hospital and 2 major operations – which included having his colon removed which was riddled with cancer. Hugo wants to raise awareness to others that they are not invincible and a simple check up at the doctor’s may just save their life.
