Neuroscientist and acclaimed author of Still Alice to speak at this year’s event
This winter, people across B.C. will take action to support people affected by dementia at Breakfast to Remember, a virtual fundraising breakfast event featuring a keynote address and live Q&A with Dr. Lisa Genova, neuroscientist, speaker and #1 international and New York Times bestselling author.
Lisa holds a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Harvard University and has captured a special place in contemporary fiction, writing stories that are equally inspired by neuroscience and the human spirit. Her first TED talk on brain health has been viewed over five million times, with her most recent talk garnering more than one million in its first month alone.
“We’re thrilled to welcome such an inspiring and accomplished speaker to our breakfast,” said Jen Lyle, CEO of the Alzheimer Society of B.C. “Lisa Genova understands all the ways dementia can change a person’s life – as well as the neuroscience behind the changes and the actions we can all take now to improve brain health. With the number of people living with dementia on the rise, there is no better time to come together and learn while helping provide critical support needed today.”
Annual Breakfast to Remember events bring B.C. business leaders together to hear inspiring talks and help raise critical funds for Alzheimer Society of B.C. programs and services, including increased virtual programming. Funds raised also enable dementia research in B.C. Following the success of a sold out inaugural virtual Breakfast to Remember in 2021, everyone in B.C. will once again have the opportunity to join the fundraiser to help show people affected by dementia they’re not alone.
We hope to once again see supporters and partners join us from all corners of the province to help ensure vital support and education is available for everyone on the dementia journey.
Breakfast to Remember is set for Thursday, March 3, from 7:30 – 9 a.m. Tickets include access to an exclusive research event, featuring a live discussion focussed on the latest research. To learn more, or to purchase tickets, visit BreakfastToRemember.ca.
