2 Researchers working together

September is World Alzheimer’s Month and incorporates World Alzheimer’s Day on 21 September. During September the Foundation will join this international campaign to raise awareness and reflect on the impact of the disease.

Currently more than 1,800 Australian’s are diagnosed with dementia every week.

Worldwide, someone is diagnosed with dementia every 3 seconds.

This disease will affect a greater number of people as the years pass. We need a major medical breakthrough.

We will be holding various events and sharing the latest in Alzheimer’s research.
