Is Dementia truly preventable?

Understanding and promoting brain health as a key part of healthy ageing and dementia prevention. Our expert talks will provide a unique viewpoint of our current understanding of brain health, which will include discussions of emerging and controversial topics, including ‘Risk factor disclosure – what does the public want to know?’ and an update on Brain Health services around the country.

Topics covered at this hybrid symposium include

  • Brain ageing: the good the bad and the unknown
  • Unconventional risk factors and cognitive toxins
  • The drugs might work…

Our programme features a lively debate on whether dementia is truly preventable, which is sure to provoke plenty of discussion.

We anticipate this hybrid symposium being of interest to a wide range of doctors, nurses and allied healthcare professionals across primary and secondary care.
