Join us on March 8 at noon for the next McGill Cares webcast to support informal caregivers. During candid, 30-minute interviews with leading experts, Claire Webster explores topics related to caring for a loved one with dementia. 

Cultural Implications of Dementia Around the World 

Wendy Weidner is Head of Research and Publications for Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI). She leads the development and growth of ADI’s global research portfolio in partnership with academic institutions and Alzheimer associations for many projects including diagnosis, dementia care pathways, interventions, clinical trials, epidemiology, and inclusion and diversity. Ms. Weidner also leads ADI publications, including the World Alzheimer Report and From Plan to Impact – a yearly report that tracks the progress of the Global Action Plan on Dementia. She also coordinates and works alongside ADI’s Medical and Scientific Advisory Panel, a diverse group of dementia specialists who provide expert advice to ADI. 

Ms. Weidner will discuss how dementia is understood in different cultures around the world, and the implications that can have on diagnosis and treatment. 

This Webcast will be available in English. 

McGill Cares is supported by the Amelia Saputo Community Outreach for Dementia Care.
