Date:     Weds 17th May

Time:     14:00 – 17:00 

The Salford Institute for Dementia will host the Alzheimer’s Research UK North West Public Engagement Event on 17 May, as part of National Dementia Awareness Week. This event is held in collaboration with The University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University and The University of Liverpool.

By hearing from academic researchers and local dementia service and providers, the engagement event aims to help people understand the bio-psych-social nature of dementia and local advances in dementia research, as well as finding out more about local dementia support networks and initiatives.

The aftenoon's proceedings have been co-produced with those directly impacted by dementia and will act as a celebration to recognise the achievements of local related projects. There will be traditional poster presentations, lab tours, information points, performances and family friendly activities which will take place at the Peel Park Campus at the University.  We will also be celebrating the launch of the ‘Hub’ space and the new dementia friendly garden at the Allerton Building, with opportunities for visitors to view the internal space, meet the team, talk to our dementia associates and participate in activities in the garden.
