Public lecture – ‘Reframing dementia: raising awareness and challenging perceptions’ – Professor Anthea Innes, UWS

Anthea PreUWS

In this public lecture, Professor 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, 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 also the Bradford Dementia Group. She 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 well-being 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.
