On Friday, June 2, 2023, Dr Aayesha Kholvadia (HOD for the Department of Human Movement Science) was honoured with the Healthcare Leadership Award at the National Medical Awards for her outstanding work in collaboration with Dr Muluvhu on establishing Biokinetic services in the public health sector.

This collaborative effort recognizes the importance of addressing non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and their management, with a specific focus on the role of exercise and movement as therapy. The initiative aims to extend the reach of Biokinetic services to the public, particularly in South Africa, where NCDs pose a significant burden. By integrating Biokinetics into the public health sector, Dr Kholvadia and Dr Muluvhu strive to improve health outcomes, enhance quality of life, and reduce the impact of NCDs, ultimately contributing to a healthier society.

We are so proud of you Dr Kholvadia!

Dr Kholvadia and Dr Muluvhu
