Dr. Thomas Harding learned from his mentor, Dr. James Craine, the nuances of developing specific neurotraining plans for brain-injured patients.
So moved by witnessing firsthand the progress made by his patients, he analyzed over 20 years of data collected by his mentor in Hawaii and reported his positive findings in 2005.
A skilled neuropsychologist in both the geriatric and brain-injured populations, Dr. Harding has often provided court testimony for patients whose mental capacity for legal matters was brought into question.
Dr. Harding has made guest appearances on radio talk shows discussing dementia-related topics.
He is also a frequent speaker at conferences on topics including proper brain stimulation and other dementia prevention strategies, as well as educating attendees on various mental health issues pertaining to the geriatric population.
Being community minded, Dr. Harding has served as Vice Chair of the Hawaii State Traumatic Brain Injury Advisory Board, Department of Health.
While living in Maui, he was a member of the Maui Geriatric Board (Hui), helping his community identify service gaps in treatment provision for the elderly.
Now living in Honolulu on Oahu, Dr. Harding is a key participant in the development of the State's 'Dementia Task Force.'
The Hawaii Dementia Task Force- like many other dementia task forces across America- are charged with solving the looming problem- how to survive the economic, political, and social impact the aging baby boomers presents.
Dr. Tom is a staunch advocate for dementia prevention- hence his latest book, You CAN Prevent Alzheimer's!
