Upcoming Guest Speakers
Dr. Nafissa Ismail (research chair in Stress and Mental Health), today and she would be delighted to give a talk for one of the upcoming meetings!! Dr. Ismail is great at public speaking, and has been on CBC Radio One, as well as CBC news many times. Funny enough, she is currently best known in the public eye as one of the pioneers of the term “man-cold”, and the science behind it. I have attached the website to the lab.

Traleena Rouleau, currently doing her clinical practicum at the Ottawa Institute of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and specializing in OCD treatment, would also like to do a speaker-session. However, she must get authorization from her supervisor before she is permitted to speak at an event as she has not yet finished her degree.
