On March 15, 2013 (World Sleep Day), the Bluewater Health Foundation arranged a book signing event for Dr. Gautam Soparkar’s award winning book “The Quick and Easy Sleep Apnea Book” at the Bluewater Health Hospital, Sarnia, Ontario, Canada. To commemorate the occasion, the on-site book price was reduced to $10.00 with all profits going to the hospital foundation.
“The Quick and Easy Sleep Apnea Book” attempts to raise public awareness about sleep apnea, a very common but under-recognized sleep disorder. The book has received a Readers Favorite Silver Medal and a finalist position in the International Book Awards competition. On-site sales of the book have supported several worthy causes, including four hospital foundations, a hospice and the Children’s Miracle Network.
Dr. Soparkar has held clinical, research and teaching positions. He has served as a program director for medical residents and as an examiner for the Medical Council of Canada as well as the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. He is a preceptor for the Southwestern Ontario Medical Education Network, Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry and an adjunct professor at Western University, London, Ontario. He has an active practice in Ontario, Canada.
