On March 31, 2023, at the age of 45, Iryna Turchyk, Doctor of Educational Sciences, Professor of Theory and Methodology Department of Physical Culture and Sports, Ivan Franko Drohobytch State Pedagogical University, died suddenly due to infection with the covid virus.

Iryna Turchyk was a talented teacher, her students loved and respected her. Her contribution to Ukrainian science is also significant: more than 100 scientific and scientific-methodological works were published by the scientist, she was a co-author of the physical education curriculum for grades 5-9 and 10-11, a member of the All-Ukrainian working group on compiling the competence potential of the field of physical education "NUSH: the basis of the standard".

Within Ukrothe she was a strong force in the development of a new educational program on occupational therapy for occupational therapists, based on the needs of the labor market (for hospitals, rehabilitation centers) and in collaboration with the government and other stakeholders.
A person of extremely sincere soul, she has actively and energetically joined the volunteer movement since the beginning of the large-scale invasion of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine.

The Ukrothe team is very sad to have lost such a valued project member.
We wish the family, friends and colleagues a lot of strength to cope with this devastating news.
Our sincere condolences.
