Dear ARG Members,
Further to our nominations at the last meeting we are delighted to announce that the next ARG coordinators from March 2015-March 2016 will be: Nicola Sirman and Anna Volkmer.
Nicola works for Solent NHS Trust in an adult community team, is a teaching fellow on the Speech and Language Sciences MSc Year B course at UCL and the research assistant on the UCL Better Conversations with Aphasia project (https://extendstore.ucl.ac.uk/product?catalog=UCLXBCA)- busy lady!!
Anna works for South London and the Maudsley NHS Trust (SLAM) and has a special interest in Primary Progressive Aphasia. In fact her interest (and knowledge) is so great she has written a book on this topic (http://www.jr-press.co.uk/cognitive-communication-difficulties-dementia.html). Anna is now in the process of testing out a conversation therapy approach with people with PPA and their partners.
Sharon and I would like to wish them good luck and we hope they enjoy running ARG as much as we have!
