Rikhard Mäki-Heikkilä

I am a Bachelor of Medicine currently studying at Tampere University. Along with my MD studies I am writing a PhD on respiratory health in athletes. I also have a strong background in cross-country skiing as I was training full-time until 2017.

The purpose of this site is to write about my own research and thoughts of athletes’ health care and sometimes single-person experiments on a lighter note. The blog posts on this site should not be considered as medical advice.

The website for our research on respiratory health in athletes is available at hengitystutkimus.fi.
