Teresa Fleming (Deaf-ASL Canadian) received the 2014 3M Health Leadership Award at the gala on December 11, 2014 for her leadership and advocacy. Handwave!
Teresa "works and advocates tirelessly for Toronto's Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing community to provide Deaf parents with the services and resources they need. Known affectionately as a "force of nature", Teresa is particularly adept at finding agency partners to provide services, engaging them with her enthusiasm, and helping them to understand the Deaf community culture and communication. Within four years, she has successfully helped to increase services, financial and organizational commitments to support parents and young children using sign language (ASL). Teresa is a trusted advocate, a valued leader, and an inspiring agent of positive and lasting change for people who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing." -- Source: Health Leadership Award, 2014.
