Our bi-monthly series of free dementia open forums at UEA creates 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 present their cutting-edge research studies and findings, with a different UEA dementia researcher leading each event.  At the end of each meeting there is a short Q&A.

Covid-19 update: We plan to continue to run these events virtually and will keep this page updated with the latest details.

We have produced a promotional film about these events which is included below.
