About Sara

Welcome!

My name is Sara Riggare and this is my website and personal blog. Sometimes I write blogs or post other things, like for example videos. If you think something you find here especially interesting, please let me know!

I am, in no particular order of priority (except for the first one):

  • Proud mother
  • Engineer
  • Swedish
  • PhD student in Selfcare for Parkinson’s Disease at Health Informatics Centre, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden
  • Extremely stubborn (alternatively highly motivated)
  • True believer in the power of social media
  • Optimistic realist with Parkinson’s
  • Not patient but im-patient

I am interested in, among other things:

  • Serendipity
  • Social media
  • Quantified Self
  • Parkinson’s
  • Healthcare and medical research
  • Participatory medicine

If you want to know a bit more about me, you can read this article that Jon Palfreman wrote in The Journal of Parkinson’s disease in March 2014.
