As part of her PhD, Hannah completed a Para Athlete Well-Being and Performance Enhancement program. Not only was the program extremely successful, she received feedback that included “I now have light at the end of the tunnel –words cannot express what you had the program have given me”. Rewarding research? Most definitely!
