REGINA — Meeting Rick Hansen during his Man in Motion world tour sparked six-year-old Josef Buttigieg’s fascination with biology and set his career course in motion.
Twenty-eight years after first meeting Hansen, Buttigieg is a biology professor at the University of Regina. Recently he received a $100,000 grant over two years from the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation (SHRF) to improve the lives of people with spinal cord injuries.
One day Buttigieg hopes he’s able to heal his hero.
