Event Description: Results of a new survey from the Alzheimer Society show Canadians are dismissing symptoms of dementia as just “old age,” and missing out on valuable early interventions. Join us on January 18 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. EST for an in-depth discussion on the importance of early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Dr. Bob Lester and Dr. Christopher Frank will host the webinar. Dr Frank is Chair of the Health Care of the Elderly committee of the College of Family Physicians of Canada; Dr Lester will be speaking from the perspective of being a carer for his wife who is living with dementia.
