About the Meeting:

This September 25, the Greater Vancouver Support Group has planned a meeting with two speakers.

Elaine Book: Clinic Social Worker, Movement Disorders Clinic, Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health,

Pacific Parkinson’s Research Centre, Parkinson’s Foundation Centre of Excellence, Clinical Instructor, Faculty of Medicine, Division of Neurology, University of British Columbia.

In addition, and more recently, Elaine has played a key role in the planning, development, and success of the BC Brain Wellness Program.

Elaine will be talking about a practical approach to improve our sleep!

Thomas Wade: Acclaimed Canadian Singer and Songwriter.

Some years ago, as Thomas was both enjoying and reaping the benefits of his highly successful career, he lost his capacity for singing, and with it, his career.

After a number of years of struggling with this affliction, he was diagnosed with Oromandibular Dystonia. It was thought that this could be part of a dual diagnosis – the other diagnosis being that of PTSD. It started him on an incredible journey of both healing and health!

Mr. Wade has written a book regarding his voyage of self-discovery entitled Singing in My Sleep.

Thomas calls his book “a nuts and bolts guide to healing our lives with the power of the mind” and will be sharing some of the more cogent aspects of this journey!
