The bi-monthly series of free dementia open fora at UEA create an exchange of knowledge between researchers, clinicians, the general public, people with dementia and their carers.  Anyone with an interest in dementia research is welcome.

Researchers from UEA will present their cutting-edge research studies and findings – with a different UEA dementia researcher leading each event.  There will also be an opportunity for people to find out how to take part in any upcoming studies at UEA.  At the end of each meeting there will be a short 15 minute Q&A and there will be tea and coffee on arrival.

In addition, there is a promotional film about the events and we have included the film below for your interest.
