On today’s episode, I’m talking to UConn Associate Vice President for Research Development Dr. Lindsay DiStefano about getting involved.
Lindsay is a full Professor and prior to becoming AVP for Research Development, was most recently head of the Department of Kinesiology at UConn, where she researches sports-related injury prevention. She trained as an athletic trainer, choosing it for the opportunity to take an active clinical role. This attitude of getting involved echoes in all parts of her life, especially when it comes to her kids. Lindsay is the founder of Be the Wonder, a foundation devoted to supporting families navigating rare diseases, which came from her and her husband's experiences as parents of kids with a rare immunodeficiency.
We talk about:
- Breaking free from our expectations of ourselves
- Taking things one step at a time
- The balance between overthinking and thinking critically
