‘Dementia: causes, diagnosis and the future’

Free to attend!

Location: William Harvey Lecture Theatre, School of Clinical Medicine, Cambridge Biomedical Campus

“There are currently around 850,000 people in the UK with dementia. ‘Dementia’ describes a set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. These changes are often small to start with, but for someone with dementia they have become severe enough to affect daily life. A person with dementia may also experience changes in their mood or behaviour” – alzheimers.org.uk

For an informative and engaging look into dementia, join Professors James Rowe, Peter St George Hyslop and John O’Brien who will present a lay fusion talk on dementia looking at; causes, diagnosis, what experimental treatments are in the pipeline and managing behavioural symptoms.

These talks are aimed at the lay person and are very topical and informative.
