New Aphasia Choir to start in Logan, Queensland

Peter Stuart, who has long been a strong advocate for aphasia awareness in Queensland, is excited that a long-held dream of his is going to happen.

A new Aphasia Choir is going to start in the City of Logan, between Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

Peter was able to gain funding from Queensland Health to set up an Aphasia Choir and Research Program, which will be headed by Dr J Yoon Irons from The Queensland Conservatorium of Music, Griffith University.

Yoon is a Music Therapist and she will be working with Professor Tamara Ownsworth (Psychologist) and Dr Petrea Cornell (Speech Pathologist) on the research. All have a deep interest in aphasia.

The meeting venue will be between Beenleigh and Woodridge, along the train line for easy accessibility.

Yoon will be meeting and recruiting People with Aphasia between September and November this year, as part of the research and the singing will start in February 2018. If you are interested in joining the choir, please feel free to contact her, either by phone or email.

Contact details are:
