Calgary AB

@anapbba Thought you’d like to introduce yourself and give a bit of background/context in case anyone from your area comes to the forum and is looking for a local connection!

If anyone in the Calgary AB Chapter area wants to introduce themselves feel free to “reply to this thread” and say hi!

  • Who are you and where are you based out of?

  • What do you do, and what are your passions and areas of interest in assistive tech (and otherwise?)

  • What are you hoping to get out of the experience of being an MMC Leader or member?

  • What are you interested to know about other Chapter Leaders and members?

If you want to start your own thread that is relevant to the Calgary area, start a new thread by clicking on Purple square that says “US Chapters” and then click “New Topic” on the right hand side. Add Calgary in the title and tags as well as some words that indicate the post topic.

If you want to talk about devices or other topics, they might fit better under an existing category in the forum so check out your options! We can help by stepping in to move threads is necessary.

If you are reading this and you aren’t signed up for the forum/website yet, these videos will also be helpful to get you started!

Go to www.makersmakingchange.com and login. Then, click on the forum tab and log in. Here is a video that walks you through the process.Tag @MMC_Zee if you need help!

Hello everyone!

I am Ana, one of the Calgary Alberta Chapter leaders! I am a biomedical engineer with a Ph.D. in neuro rehabilitation. At the moment I work at the University of Calgary as a Postdoc researcher at the Department of Neuroscience. I have worked with the development and testing of assistive technologies for a while now and I am passionate about it! I hope to help as many people as possible here in Calgary as a Chapter Leader! :slight_smile:

Cheers,
Ana Arantes
