It has been a busy year for the Wicking Centre, with a large number of projects spanning dementia health service development, neuroscience and education, with over $7,800,000 of funding being managed by the Centre in 2011. The Wicking Annual Report will be available online in December. Thank you for your support as the Centre seeks to prepare Tasmania and Australia for the increasing numbers of people with dementia. Warm wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
The Wicking Dementia Research Network has been running for a year in Hobart, with round table discussions covering topics of community care, the diseases causing dementia, advocacy etc. Members of 35 organisations share the common ground of researching or working with people with dementia and their carers. We intend to spread this network across the state in 2012 and welcome all interested partners. Please contact Di Carter for more information.
November Tasmanian Healthy Brain Project information sessions across the state resulted in dozens of people aged between 50 and 79 expressing their interest in being a participant of the project and studying at UTAS. If you want to help solve the puzzle of dementia and enjoy the challenge and reward of university study, please browse the Tasmanian Healthy Brain Project website or contact Suzie Castillo (pictured).
