The Road Home is proud to announce the successful recipient of our world-first Invictus Pathways Scholarship at the University of South Australia.
Congratulations to Suzana Freegard who, thanks to the kind support of our donors, will commence her PhD exploring the long-term effect Invictus Games participation has on returned veterans’ health and wellbeing, with the ultimate aim of aiding their recovery.
As part of her PhD, Suzana will follow the journeys our wounded veterans’ take in preparation for the Games and the games itself, travelling to the 2018 Invictus Games in Sydney. This will help her evaluate the psychological, social and physical health and rehabilitation of the service personnel.
We are so proud to support this research that will improve our understanding and inform development for more health and wellbeing models and programs to ensure injured veterans, and their families, get the care they need to improve their wellbeing.
We look forward to updating you on Suzana’s progress throughout her PhD that will play a role in helping pave the road home for the men and women who serve to protect us.
