Connect at Think Tank

17 September 2007

Sally Byng, Connect's Access to Life in Cornwall Project Director, was delighted to be invited to an Aphasia 'Think Tank' in Canada this month. The 'Think Tank' called 'Living Successfully with Aphasia: Intervention, Evaluation and Evidence' is being organised by the Pat Arato Aphasia Institute in Toronto.

Sally said "I am pleased to be part of this interesting Think Tank and conference at the Aphasia Institute, that is bringing together researchers and clinicians with long experience of influencing practice in working with people with aphasia.  I really hope it can make a positive contribution to the experience of people living with aphasia".

Sally also contributed to the recent HSJ 'Transforming Stroke Services' conference in London on 13th September, talking about how the Connect 'Access to Life in Cornwall Project' has involved service users and carers in developing a long term stroke support service.
