Dementia forum shines light on brain health

Learn more about how sleep, physical activity and family history could influence your chances of getting dementia at a free public information session in June.

Held as part of the Australian Dementia Forum 2019, national and international experts will present the latest scientific evidence about how certain factors including blood pressure can influence a person’s chance of getting dementia.

The session, Brain Health and Dementia Risk, will be held on Friday, 14 June from 1.30pm at the Hotel Grand Chancellor, Hobart and will be chaired by Professor James Vickers, Director of the Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre.

This year’s Australian Dementia Forum is being held in Hobart with the theme – ‘Shining a light on the impact of dementia research’.

The event will examine how best to maximise the impact and benefit of dementia research to the whole community, for people living with dementia, their families and careers, and those at risk of dementia.
