“I am proud to be supported by Funds for Women Graduates for my research, which includes the soon to be published first extended study of the processes of writing with work-related upper limb disorder, as both this condition and my rare developmental disability to which it is secondary, are particularly prevalent, under supported and underdiagnosed in women. This work would not have been possible without Funds for Women Graduates’ support.”
