Understanding Dementia: Prevention, Playlists and Progress

By 2025, an estimated one million people in the UK and Ireland will have dementia. Our goal is find ways to detect disease before symptoms appear.

Our aim to predict who is at greatest risk of dementia in later life, and to develop effective interventions to slow or prevent the diseases that cause dementia.

Join the Edinburgh Dementia Prevention research team from the University of Edinburgh alongside dementia charity Playlist for Life for an evening discussion on how we can all improve our brain health, contribute to ongoing research and manage our risk of dementia in later life.

Leading global experts will explore how lifestyle, environment and genes all play their part in the most challenging health conditions of our time. They will provide insights on current research, the power of personalised music for dementia and how anyone interested in joining a brain health study can get involved.

The evening in Arran is part of an events series which will see the panel visit several locations across Scotland. See the above link for further information and details on the event.

Playlist for Life is a UK music and dementia charity. We use the music of a person’s life to keep them connected to themselves and their loved ones throughout their dementia journey.
