A programme of presentations and demonstrations will commence at 1pm, providing valuable insight into current research projects and developments in healthcare across the Institute. Refreshments will be served at 5pm.

Public lecture – 'Reframing dementia: raising awareness and challenging perceptions' – Professor Anthea Innes, UWS 17.30 - 18.30

In this public lecture, Professor Anthea Innes will draw on examples from her dementia research over the last two decades to discuss the challenges associated with dementia and the importance of raising awareness as part of the public health campaign to achieve an outcome where people live well with dementia for longer.

Professor Innes, who recently joined UWS, was previously the inaugural Director and Head of the Bournemouth University Dementia Institute (BUDI). She has previously worked at the Dementia Services Development Centre at the University of Stirling, and the Bradford Dementia Group. Professor Innes is passionate about her subject and has been consistent in her focus on encouraging everyone to acknowledge the importance of working with people with dementia and other stakeholders to improve the lives and wellbeing of all those impacted by this condition.

To secure a place at either of these events please register on Eventbrite by closing date of 14 January 2016.

We look forward to seeing you at the event.
