In DAI’s “A Meeting of the Minds” monthly Webinar series, we feature people who have unique perspectives on dementia and who challenge the status quo, most often speakers who are highly regarded eminent international academics, clinicians and well regarded speakers.
Monthly webinars focus on a variety of topics, and provide an opportunity for people with dementia to connect with the wider community of those living with the disease. To participate, you need only an Internet connection, while a webcam and microphone will ensure a fuller experience.
