Kalein Fall Speaker’s Series 2019
With financial support from the Kootenay Boundary Division of Family Practice, we are pleased to invite you to the Fall 2019 Speaker’s Series, featuring Jeremie Saunders, from the CBC Podcast ‘Sickboy’.
Please join us on Saturday, October 19th at the Civic Theatre to hear how ‘Sickboy’ podcast host, Jeremie Saunders, combats disease with laughter!
Jeremie is an award-winning actor, producer, yoga instructor, TedTalk giver, and host of popular Canadian media, including film, tv, and podcasts who is passionate about shifting the perspective & stigma around chronic illness & death. Jeremie lives openly with a fatal, genetic illness called Cystic Fibrosis, knowing the disease will eventually kill him. But instead of wallowing in his own despair, he does exactly the opposite, by broadcasting the paradigm-shifting conversations that he & his closest friends have with guests about their personal journeys through chronic illness & death.
Using a mix of raw emotion, humour and frank, unfiltered discussions, Jeremie speaks to living critically and passionately; and making the most of the time we have left. His CBC podcast, ‘Sickboy’, is changing how people view illness. Jeremie’s talk, entitled, “Opportunities for Growth in Dark Times – The Power of Storytelling”, will commence at 5pm and be followed by a Q&A session.
To join us for this exciting evening, you can contact the Civic Theatre for tickets ($15 each). If you would like further information on this initiative, please contact Mike Stolte at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you there!
