Webinars in 2024

In February 2024, we restarted our series of webinars focusing on improving the experience of diagnosis for younger people with dementia and their families.

Our aim is to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and experience amongst professionals to improve understanding of issues relating to the experience of young onset diagnosis, how those issues might be resolved and the resultant benefits.

You can watch webinars from October 2022-November 2023 here.
