Research Awareness Breakfasts
ASNS Staff with Teepa Snow at the Halifax Research Breakfast on January 7, 2016
Hi! I'm Teepa Snow. I'm a dementia-care education specialist with a background in occupational therapy and over 30 years in clinical practice. I've worked in a variety of settings, with a variety of people, and would say I have learned a lot. I do a special kind of experiential training called multi-modal learning. I help people go from what they think they know about dementia to greater awareness. I help build knowledge (the why and the how) behind why people with dementia, or other forms of brain change, are doing what they are doing. And, I help build skill because, if you are going to make a difference, you've got to change. The condition is changing them. The question is, what are you going to do about it? You are on the journey. Take a look, and then try some of the tips I have provided because you can be the big difference. Not in where you end up, but in how you get there.

Support research in dementia.
In January, the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia host Research breakfasts in Halifax, Sydney, and on the South Shore. The Alzheimer Research Awareness Breakfasts engage community members, physicians, nursing home employees, home care agencies, and businesses in education on current research in Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. Anyone can attend the breakfasts. At the breakfasts, guests will have the opportunity to support research and promote awareness in an effort to fight this disease.
All proceeds from the breakfasts go directly towards research in Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.
