September 2005 launches a new community education program of Alzheimer's Australia based on the best available medical evidence about what may reduce the risk of developing dementia. Devised in conjunction with a team of Australian geriatricians and psycho-geriatricians, the program identifies what you can do to keep your brain healthier as you age.
"We want to make the community aware that keeping your brain healthy is as important as keeping your body healthy. The strategies we are promoting help both the body and the brain. We will publish a consumer brochure outlining the strategies, which will be distributed to various community groups and the media.
Associate Professor Marc Budge, Director of Geriatric Medicine, Medical School at the Canberra Hospital, will conduct this briefing for dementia care professionals to help answer any questions that may arise from this program.
Wishing you a peaceful and relaxing week!
