New Team Leader for Tonari Gumi’s “Stop Elder Abuse” Program

_MG_0466We are pleased to introduce Todd Katsuyama, our newest member who is the Team Leader for the Elder Abuse Program. He brings over 10 years experience in project management and is a positive addition to our team. As a Japanese Canadian, he was always looking for ways to help within the Japanese community, and is devoting some of his time to build awareness programs on elderly abuse issues. He is coordinating with partner organizations and groups to address the issues related to elder abuse both locally and internationally.

Todd grew up and studied in Toronto, and has lived in Tokyo for over 12 years. _MG_0459He returned to Canada in the summer of 2012, and is currently happily living in Vancouver, where he can enjoy the mountains and beaches, and of course the really good Japanese food here!

We look forward to working together with Todd as he will be involved with the Japanese community and increase awareness of elderly abuse issues through programs in the Lower mainland and regions across B.C.
