McGill Cares: Understanding Vascular Dementia
Join us on February 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.
Understanding Vascular Dementia
Sandra E. Black, MD, FRCPC, is Professor of Medicine (Neurology) at the University of Toronto. She is an internationally known cognitive and stroke neurologist. She was the inaugural Executive Director of the Toronto Dementia Research Alliance (2012-20), and in April 2020, she became Scientific Director of the Dr. Sandra Black Centre for Brain Resilience and Recovery. Her research bridges dementia and stroke, using standardized, quantitative neuroimaging, cognitive, functional and neuropsychiatric measures, genetics, and neuropathology to study brain-behavior relationships in the common dementias. Dr. Black was appointed Member of the Order of Ontario in 2011 and Officer of the Order of Canada in 2015 for her contributions to Alzheimer’s disease, stroke and vascular dementia.
Dr. Black will discuss vascular dementia, who is most at risk, and how it differs from other forms of dementia.
