Congratulations Emily Ong

The DAI Board of Directors and DAI membership wishes to congratulate Ms. Emily Ong  from Singapore on her election to the board of Alzheimer’s Disease International. 

There were many nominations for this position than in past years, from multiple countries, so it is exciting to know the voices of people with the lived experience of dementia is growing. The election took place at the ADI Council meeting on Wednesday 8 June, the day before the ADI conference commenced, with Emily winning the vote, and Mrs. Helen Rochford-Brennan being a close second.

We therefore also congratulate Helen, and the other nominees, as we  know they will still continue with their advocacy.

Emily will not only represent DAI members well, but with her multicultural background, and focus on low and middle income countries, will serve the global dementia community.

We also congratulate our co-founder and Human Rights Advisor Kate Swaffer, who stepped down from the ADI board this week, having served ADI on their board as an elected member since 2016, having fulfilled the full two terms allowed, thereby vacating the position on the ADI board for a person living with dementia.

Check out the past, and upcoming ADI Conference sessions which include people living with dementia here, as you will see some of your friends.
