Mentor Spotlight: Mario Gregorio Featured in Reader’s Digest

Mario Readers Digest

UBC Health Mentor Mario Gregorio made the cover of Reader’s Digest in September. Mario has mentored 3 cohorts of students since becoming a Health Mentor in 2016. He wants to reduce the stigma associated with dementia. In the article Mario shares many of the same lessons he shares with UBC students about what has worked for him in managing his dementia.

Mario was also one of 8 advisory group members who helped create the first-ever Canadian Charter of Rights for People with Dementia launched by the Alzheimer Society in 2018.
