Korean Educator Transforming Lives through Rehabilitation
Jeongmin Lee knows that increased public awareness and accessibility for persons with disabilities is needed in South Korea. As a former member of the Korean national para-rowing and para-cross country skiing teams and current chairperson of the athlete’s council of the Asian Paralympic Committee and the Korean Anti-Doping Association, Jeongmin is committed to changing these realities. He is now pursuing a PhD in sport rehabilitation and medicine and hopes to leverage his Paralympic experience and education to empower persons with disabilities through sport, physical activity, and rehabilitation.
For GSMP: Sport for Community 2019, Jeongmin will be mentored by Mary Patstone, Director of Adapted Sports and Recreation, and her team at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network in Boston, MA.
