Yesterday was #RareDiseaseDay. Altec’s @bhawnashiwani attended @NIH ‘s event to share research on Clinician-guided virtual reality exergames for individuals with muscular dystrophy.

Every time I come back home after working abroad for a while, I reinforce my feelings that we perform “miracles” as scientists in Brazil, and there is no way to compete with the research developed in wealthier countries. We keep fighting because we freaking love science.

Today is a good day- I’ve been promoted to Associate Professor 👩🏼‍🏫 ! 💪🏼 Lots of people to thank on this journey, but mostly my student colleagues who are so inspiring and incredible. @BoiseStateCOEN – looks like you’re stuck with me! 🧡💙
