Hola!

Mey van Munster
My name is Mey van Munster. I’m from Brazil and I am honored to be nominated as the IFAPA Regional Representative for South America.


About me: Currently I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Education and Human Motricity - DEFMH of the Federal University of São Carlos - UFSCar, where I coordinate the Center for Studies in Adapted Physical Activity - NEAFA and service projects related to this topic. I also teach and advise at the master’s and doctorate levels at the Special Education Graduate Program at UFSCar. I’ve been working with Adapted Physical Education and Sports in Brazil for the past 30 years. I am a member of the Brazilian Association of Adapted Motor Activity - SOBAMA since 1995, and joined IFAPA in 2011.
If you’d like more information please don’t hesitate to contact me.
