We did it!
Also in 2017 thanks to Bournemouth University, I had the opportunity to volunteer for the Festival of Learning
Here is what we have done:
8 July – A-mazing student research, organised by Hannah Jones.
o Description: Fancy getting lost in our research maze? Join us inside the maze for a chance to see some of the fantastic work that BU students are doing to make an impact in the world around them. The only question is – will you turn left or right?
I actively participate in this event by explaining what the human balance is, why is important to prevent a fall accident in our older adult community and the latest intervention of falls prevention.
9 July – Falls prevention: how good is your balance, organised by me.
o Description: Balance is the body`s ability to stay upright and control of movement. It is necessary for all daily activities, but over time, adults lose this ability, The interactive drop-in session will show the importance of falls prevention, testing your balance with simple but fun tests. Come and learn more about your balance and what you can do to avoid a falls.
With help from Dr James Gavin, PRG Yolanda Barrado-Martin, PRG Iram Bibi, PRG Eduardo Carbonell we brought the balance, strength and cognitive tests in the fantastic quay of Poole.
10 July – Orthopaedic research institute: Expert talks, organised by Tom Wainwright.
o Description: Expert speakers invited by BU`s Orthopaedic Research Institute will share the insight of the latest developments in orthopaedic patient care. Join us to find out about the most recent expertise through a series of informative, fun and entreating presentation.
I actively participate in this event by demonstrating how new VICON technology works.
It was a formative, challenging and fun experience.
