Join us on November 30 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. 

Life, Love, Strength: A Doctor’s Journey of Caring for his Wife

Robert W. Francis, MDCM, graduated from the McGill Faculty of Medicine in 1968.  He is founder and former Chairman Emeritus of Medcan Health Management Inc. and most recently the founder and CEO of ReGen Scientific Inc., both of which are medical services clinics focused on preventative medicine.  

While caring for his wife, Sharon, who passed away from Alzheimer’s disease in 2019, he searched relentlessly around the world for a cure.  He has since set up the Sharon Francis Institute for Regenerative Medicine in her memory. 

Dr. Francis will talk about his experience caring for his wife, and how her life with Alzheimer’s drives his mission to find a cure and improve the lives of those now living with the disease. 

This English webcast is free and open to the public.

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