Sara Riggare is going to be in our Final Project Workshop next 21th of April in Madrid, and we are so proud of having her experience.

Sara is an engineer by training. She is a doctoral student at Karolinska Institutet (Sweden). Her research project is in the field of Medical Management and the overall purpose of her project is to facilitate individual improvements in health outcomes in chronic disease. The aim of the proposed research is to describe and evaluate a methodology for improving the basis for communication for people with chronic diseases.

Sara experienced her first symptoms of Parkinson's disease around 1984, at 13, but wasn't diagnosed until nearly 20 years later. In 2010 she decided to combine her patient experiences with her engineering skills to try to improve things for herself and others with chronic diseases so she started studying at a masters programme in health informatics at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden.

She was a co-founder of Parkinson's Movement which is a research-focussed, patient-driven platform for information and canvassing within the Parkinson’s community. Informed bloggers, webinars, polls, debates and so much more create a patient-focussed hub. And she was the owner of Kemakta Konsult AB, an independent, personnel-owned consulting company specialising in environmental risk assessment, waste disposal and nuclear technology. In an environmental risk assessment, calculations are carried out to predict the dispersal of contaminants from, for example, a contaminated site or waste deposit.
