Tweet: You can’t always stop the rain, but wouldn’t it be nice if there was an umbrella for everyone?
As a survivor of an acquired brain injury, Wendy has enjoyed being a member of the UBC Health Mentors Program over the past school year.
On Wednesday, April 22nd 2015 Wendy's group presented what they have learned at the annual Health Mentors Program Symposium in the Life Sciences Centre on campus.
The group's 'tweet' was accompanied by a poster board display that showed the issues that one may struggle with once home from the hospital, each of these falling upon an umbrella which was supported by the many professionals available to help.
"It’s an experience of learning from each other, and I have been delighted to take part. I hope that more survivors and caregivers in the Lower Mainland will consider taking part next year." says Wendy.
