Biokinetics Academic Receives ASAIPA Award

Co-ordinator of the Biokinetics programme at UKZN, Dr Jeanne Grace received an Alliance of SA Independent Practitioners Association (ASAIPA) National Medical Award at a ceremony in Pretoria.

The ASAIPA awards recognise practitioners who contribute to independent private practice and embrace digital solutions to achieve improved patient and business outcomes; organisations, groups or individuals that enhance the medical profession’s standing in the community; young practitioners who excel and achievements by colleagues in non-medical fields.

Grace was recognised for enhancing the Biokinetics profession’s standing in the community and more specifically, for contributing to the profession by representing Biokineticists at the HPCSA as the current Biokinetics representative on the HPCSA Board for Physiotherapy, Podiatry and Biokinetics.

‘I am honoured to receive this national medical award and to be recognised amongst an elite group of independent primary healthcare providers and allied stakeholders. It is very rewarding, especially because I was nominated by my peers from the Biokinetics profession. This shows that my efforts are appreciated,’ she said.
