Kiropraktor Pernille Irgens disputerte denne uken med sin doktorgrad, og bestod med glans!

Tirsdag 22. november forsvarte Pernille Irgens sin doktorgradsavhandling om nakkesmerter ved Universitetet i Oslo. En stor dag for Pernille, men også en stor dag for kiropraktikken. NKF gratulerer Pernille så mye med disputasen, og benytter anledningen til å takke henne for innsatsen hun gjør for faget og profesjonen.
