Alzheimer's Disease - Research Update

About this Event

September is World Alzheimer’s Month and a time to bring global focus to the challenges we face regarding dementia and the impact it has and will continue to have on our ability to age comfortably.

This lecture will aim to provide an insight into some of the research that may provide some hope for a future where memories of a life well lived can be enjoyed and shared with others.

You will hear from several speakers talking on a variety of topics and there will be a Q&A panel to take questions at the end of the program.

A representative from Alzheimer’s WA will also join the panel to answer any questions the audience may have regarding the assistance Alzheimer’s WA can provide.

There will also be information about how you or a loved one can take part in our research. Our research work includes:

Observational studies - to better understand the causes of the disease and the disease process.

Preventative research – to understand what strategies have an impact on preventing the disease, or slowing its progress.

Treatments trials - involving pharmaceutical treatments that may have a benefit in treating the disease.

Two lectures will be held on Wednesday the 18th of September - a morning session and evening session, both lectures will have the same content.
