PUBLIC LECTURE SERIES
This forum is organised by University of East Anglia (UEA). We welcome everyone with an interest in dementia research to join UEA researchers, and guests, as they present their cutting-edge studies and findings:
Our next Open Forum is taking place on Thursday 22 June 2023 at 2pm online via Zoom. This time we will be welcoming guest speaker Professor Rob Howard.
Speaker: Professor Rob Howard, Professor of Old Age Psychiatry, University College London:
