Towards a cure: A public forum on Alzheimer's disease and dementia research
On October 4, the Alzheimer Society of B.C., Brain Canada, Genome British Columbia, the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research and the Pacific Alzheimer Research Foundation will have an in-depth discussion of how research is moving towards a cure for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. An expert panel will break down the current state of dementia research, including the crucial role played by individuals and families living with the disease. Afterwards, a Q&A session will open the floor for public discussion.
