A Speech That Makes A Difference

Dr. David Rainham is a Family Physician, author, speaker and creator of the StressWinnertm model.
His interest in Stress Management developed through the frustration of finding that the majority of patients with unpleasant and sometimes frightening symptoms had no specific disease but were suffering from anxiety and tension resulting from a wide variety of stresses.

Helping patients recognize and manage stress became a major part of his practice and lead to the development of various tools,books, booklets and presentations.

Dr. Rainham also writes a weekly newspaper column and is a regular contributor for a variety of magazines, newsletters and radio and television programs.

In addition to his writing, Dr. Rainham is an accomplished speaker using a friendly, light hearted style to educate and motivate regarding the impact of stress in our lives. He continuously receives great reviews for his presentations to a large variety of companies, organizations and conferences.
