We are delighted to be hosting events across the West Coast of Scotland this September to share the latest research on preventing dementia.
Join us for an evening of stimulating discussion around how we can all improve our brain health and manage our risk of dementia in later life.
Leading experts from the Centre for Dementia Prevention will offer advice and information on how lifestyle, environment and genes all play their part in one of the most challenging health conditions of our time.
We will also be joined by specialists from the music and dementia charity, Playlist for Life, who will provide insights on the power of personalised music for those living with dementia.
The series will take place across several locations on the West Coast of Scotland:
- Tuesday 4th September: Ullapool, Village Hall
- Wednesday 5th September: Fort William, Nevis Centre
- Thursday 6th September: Oban, Corran Halls
The evening will include:
– Welcome and introductions – Dr Vanessa Raymont, Clinicial Psychiatrist, the Dementia Prevention Research Group at the University of Edinburgh
– Are we nearly there yet? Current priorities in dementia prevention research – Prof Craig Ritchie, Director of the Edinburgh Dementia Prevention Research Group
– Connecting music, people and memories: Personal music for dementia – Andy Lowndes, Playlist for Life Charity
– How lifestyle choices may reduce your risk: environment, activity and medicines – Dr Tom Russ, Co-Director of the Alzheimer’s Scotland Research Centre at the University of Edinburgh
Our speakers and researchers will be available to answer any questions you may have, and to explain how you can get involved in dementia prevention research.
