Dementia Friends Information Sessions and Research Talks
Date: Monday 20th February, 2pm and 7.30pm, The Theatre, Chipping Norton (OX7 5NL).
Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friends programme is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition and over one million people have become Dementia Friends so far. Please join us for a Dementia Friends Information Session at The Theatre, Chipping Norton, and learn a little more about dementia and some of the small ways that you can help those living with the condition. Between us, let’s make a huge difference to our community.
The information session will be followed by short talks and a question and answer session with researchers from the University of Oxford. The afternoon session will include talks from:
Naiara Demnitz - PhD student examining the relationship between mobility and brain measures.
Dr Michele Veldsman - postdoctoral researcher looking at the impact of different dementias on brain networks
Dr Jenny McCleery - consultant psychiatrist and editor of Cochrane Dementia and Cognitive Improvement Group
