2021 Canada Gairdner Ontario Symposium supported by the Krembil Foundation.
Co-organized by Krembil Brain Institute, University Health Network and Johns Hopkins University
There are more than half a million Canadians currently living with dementia, including Alzheimer’s, the most common type of dementia. By 2031, that number is expected to rise to close to a million.
So, why do we still have more questions than answers when it comes to prevention, new treatments, and ultimately, a cure? This event aims to address those questions and provide answers about the current state of research.
With this unique two-day virtual event, we will focus on making current dementia research accessible for both researchers and the public. We need our communities to be better informed about this disorder and ultimately to act as ambassadors for dementia research. Where there is science, there is hope.
