2020 Alzheimer Update
Time & Location
About the Event
We are thrilled to invite you to our 2020 Update on Alzheimer Disease. This annual forum is an opportunity for us to share the latest, worldwide research on Alzheimer disease, including a progress report on new and emerging therapies. The meeting is also an opportunity for you to learn about the local research effort in dementia, and how ongoing UBC projects integrate with the global search for a cure.
One of the highlights of 2017 was the passing of Bill C-233 to establish a national strategy for Alzheimer disease and other dementias in Canada. Once fully developed, we hope this will further strengthen dementia research both nationally as well as in British Columbia and UBC.
Please join us to learn more about these exciting developments. We look forward to seeing you on May 23, 2020.
