Gabor Maté, MD: BEYOND THE HUNGRY GHOST IN POLITICS
"Gabor Maté's connectionsbetween the intensely personal and the global, the spiritual and the medical, the psychological and the politicalare bold, wise and deeply moral. He is a healer to be cherished" Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine

  Dr. Gabor Maté is the bestselling author of 4 books, including:
 * In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction
 * When the Body Says No: Exploring the Stress-Disease Connection
 * Scattered: How Attention Deficit Disorder Originates and What You Can Do
  About  It"
* Hold on to Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More than Peers

Born in Budapest, Hungary  in 1944, Gabor Maté moved to Canada with his family during the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. He graduated from secondary school in Vancouver, BC and earned a teaching degree from Simon Fraser University. In his late twenties, working as a Grade 11 history teacher in North Vancouver, BC, he heeded an inner call that had been with him since childhood and decided to return to school to pursue a career as a doctor.

For two decades Dr. Maté ran a popular family practice in East Vancouver. For seven years he also served as Medical Coordinator of the Palliative Care Unit at Vancouver Hospital, caring for the terminally ill. More recently he worked for twelve years in Vancouver's notorious Downtown Eastside neighborhood with patients suffering from hardcore drug addiction, mental illness, and HIV.

In the 1990's Dr. Maté was a regular medical columnist for the Vancouver Sun, and Globe and Mail newspapers. His four books have all been Canadian bestsellers, and have been published in nearly twenty languages on five continents. In 2009 Dr. Maté received an Outstanding Alumnus Award from Simon Fraser University, and has recently been appointed Adjunct Professor in SFU's School of Criminology. In 2011 he received an Honorary Degree from the University of Northern British Columbia.

Dr. Maté maintains a busy international touring/speaking schedule year-round. He lives in Vancouver with Rae, his wife of 43 years. They have three adult children.
