We’re so pleased to congratulate Jim Mann of British Columbia on being honoured with the prestigious Neurological Health Charities of Canada 2013 Change-Maker Award!
Jim is a passionate advocate for people living with dementia and this award recognizes his work as an advocate and spokesperson both locally and nationally, as well as his service as a board member for the Alzheimer Society of B.C. (ASBC), the Alzheimer Society of Canada and on the Canadian Dementia Knowledge Translation Network Advisory Board.
In 2007, Jim was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s disease but that never stopped this former government relations consultant from living life to the fullest.
We sat down with Jim to discuss his work as a change-maker and to talk about what others can do to be change-makers in their community!
