Claire Snyman is an author, blogger and advocate for patient and healthcare collaboration. She is passionate about inspiring people to put their health in their own hands. Since being diagnosed in 2010 with a non-malignant brain tumor and brain surgery in 2012, she realized the importance of partnering with her healthcare team and becoming her body’s own advocate. She co-authored a collaborative study between patients and neurosurgeons at Johns Hopkins University: The impact of surgical resection on headache disability and quality of life in patients with colloid cyst (Cephalalgia, May 10, 2016). She presented this work at MedX-Ed in April 2017: Patient and health care professional collaborations – shaping the future. She recently initiated a new study focused on quality of life in patients with glioblastoma muiltforme, keen to ensure more information is available about this aggressive form of brain cancer. Her key focus is looking for ways to guide people to put their health in their hands and work with their healthcare partners to achieve better outcomes. She currently volunteers with the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada as the chair of the BrainWAVE BC program. She can be found at www.twosteps.ca.

Best conversations in Vancouver
Vancouver Real brings out some of the best conversations I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to. If a city can have a nature vs culture balance, Vancouver is lopsided in favour of nature—but Vancouver Real does a fantastic job of trying to even out that balance. They bill themselves as being dedicated to “cultural evolution,” but in real life what this seems to mean is fascinating conversations with a broad range of interesting people. What I find so valuable is the variety: intellectual, demographic, worldview; their guests are always different and always a pleasure to listen to. And so are the Zaremba brothers, who run the podcast. It’s like being invited to the best dinner parties—where the guests are both interesting and true to themselves rather than being careful—on a weekly basis.

Powerful content, that encourages growth!
OK, so I may be biased as I am one of the hosts of this show, but even when I try to be objective about it, if you're into personal development, open-mindedness, creativity, entrepreneurship, spirituality and listening to interesting people, then this show could be for you!

Thought Provoking and Refreshing
Andy and Mike are thought provoking interviewers that dig deep into topics I do not see elsewhere. I love the episodes that get into the subconscious brain. Vancouver Real is refreshing.
