Rare and Young Onset Dementia Knowledge Exchange 2022
An Online Knowledge Exchange Event
Organized By Rare Dementia Support Canada
This live virtual Knowledge Exchange is a part of public engagement activities of the Rare Dementia Support (RDS) Impact Study, a five-year study funded jointly by the UK Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC) and National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). The event is being hosted by Rare Dementia Support Canada which Is a newly funded information, advice, and tailored support service for people affected by rare and young onset dementia, in collaboration with The Aphasia Centre of Ottawa.
This year’s event will focus on primary progressive aphasia (PPA) which refers to a group of dementias that affect an individual's speech and language. We will feature presentations on the clinical symptoms and stages of PPA as well as rehabilitation and support for both the person living with aphasia and their care partners. The speakers will include research practitioners from University College London and colleagues from the Aphasia Centre of Ottawa. The event will be of interest to people living with rare or young onset dementia, family care partners as well as professionals, researchers, and students.
This free event will be held on Zoom. To register and to view the agenda, please visit the Eventbrite page HERE.
