Event Details


Event Date: 7 December 2016

 

Time: 12:00-13:00

 

Description: 

 

Training to become a Paralympian takes hard work, dedication, and sacrifices. And so does training to be a physiotherapist. Nicolina Pernheim manages to juggle both, as a final year student at Gothenburg University as well as recently competing at the Rio Paralympics. Nicolina will be sharing her experience of being a blind physiotherapy student and how she manages to juggle her academic and sporting careers. Accompanying her will be Kristina Fagher, a physiotherapist and PhD student at Lund University. Kristina will be briefly outlining some of her research and how she helps athletes like Nicolina perform to their optimum capacity.
