UQ physiotherapy graduate creating change in remote communities
Nick Kenny’s dream of playing professional rugby league with the Broncos was cut short after a neck injury ended his football career.
With a physiotherapy degree from UQ to fall back on, Nick moved to the Northern Territory where he now helps Indigenous Australians with Machado Joseph Disease negotiate their environment safely. By learning to see the world differently, Nick is creating change.
