Posted on July 19, 2010

It was with great pleasure that I opened the email from Dr. Peter Milburn last February announcing that I had been awarded a Student Travel Grant.  After receiving this great news, my supervisor, Dr. Geneviève Dumas, and I started planning our trip to Benin (West Africa) to carry out a study on the biomechanics of head load carriage and pregnancy.  This study was performed through a partnership with Dr. Mohamed Lawani of the Institut National de la Jeunesse, de l’Éducation Sportive et Physique (INJEPS) in Porto-Novo, Benin.
