Live online webinar

During Dementia Awareness Month, join the University of Queensland's researchers for a live webinar to discuss the Dementia Research at UQ.

Every three seconds, someone in the world is diagnosed with dementia. Currently, there is no cure. In 2020, almost 500,000 Australians were living with dementia and, without a breakthrough, that number is expected to grow to more than one million by 2050. Now the second leading cause of death in Australia, dementia is fast becoming one of the most pressing health challenges of our time. As a reflection of the severity of this challenge, the World Health Organisation has declared this decade (2020-2030) as the Decade of Healthy Ageing in a global effort to advocate for ageing well.

In Dementia Action Month 2021, join University of Queensland's researchers, Master of Ceremonies, Professor Gail Robinson and panel members, Professor Jürgen Götz, Professor Nancy Pachana and Dr Nadeeka Dissanayaka for a live webinar where they will discuss Dementia Research underway across UQ.
