SCI People Chair appointed

Wednesday, September 02, 2009

We are delighted Dr Louise Mofflin from Perth has agreed to Chair the Spinal Cord Injury Network's SCI People Committee.

Louise undertook her PhD at the University of Cambridge and went on to conduct both laboratory-based and clinical research projects at the Lions Eye Institute (LEI) in Perth.

She established her own business in 1990, working as a consultant for grant applications, and was involved in various voluntary roles ranging from science education in schools to surf life-saving.

Her personal interest and involvement in sport and health led her to retrain as a soft tissue therapist in 2005, which has involved work in chronic pain management, sports injury prevention and treatment, and development and implementation of training programs for students.

In November 2008, Louise was involved in a cycling accident resulting in paraplegia (T7 complete) and underwent treatment at the Sir George Bedbrook spinal unit in Perth. She now wishes to use her personal experience, knowledge and skills to improve outcomes for people affected by SCI.
