Edinburgh Aphasia Interest Group (EAIG)
We are a group of interested researchers, students, Speech & Language Therapists and any other individuals working/researching aphasia.
Why: The purpose of these meetings is to share aphasia research & knowledge, in order to enhance evidence-based practice in speech and therapy language as well as to promote collaborative and inter-disciplinary work within and between researchers and healthcare professionals.
What: Each meeting will focus on a specific area related to aphasia. The meetings will consist of, but are not limited to: presentations by members of the group and/or external speakers; case studies; journal article consideration; followed by a general discussion of the topic.
When: We meet 4 times a year (once a season) - the timings of the meetings will be varied to allow as many people as possible to attend. Meetings will be advertised on the Psychology eventsfeed as well as the main group website.
Where: We vary the location of our meetings around central Edinburgh, to accommodate as many people as possible. Meetings will be held in the following locations: Edinburgh University (Bristo Square); Western General Hospital; Queen Margaret University and Astley Ainslie Hospital. Web-conferencing may also be available at some of these sites for those unable to attend.
Contact: The EAIG is led and organised by Dr Thomas Bak, Anna Jones and Mariana Vega-Mendoza. Please visit the Edinburgh Aphasia Interest Group website for further information, or contact the group organisers on: edinburghaig[at]gmail.com
