DAI Members active at the ADI2022 Conference in London


It is an exciting time for many people with dementia from around the world, many of who are also members of DAI, as they are attending and involved at the ADI Conference in London next week, either in person, or virtually.

We congratulate them all, and look forward to reporting back on their sessions.

On Wednesday June 9, ADI and DAI look forward to welcoming all people with dementia and their travel companions or care partners to the conference, which will be held in the Prince of Wales room, during the morning tea break.

Along with key ADI’s Chris Lynch, Jane Cziborra and Paola Barbarino, DAI board members Julie Haydn and Bill Yeates will be there to welcome everyone.
