Talking to the public about your work can be a hugely rewarding part of being a researcher.
At Alzheimer’s Research UK, we champion the message that research will make life-changing breakthroughs to create a better future for everyone affected by dementia. Through our communications and engagement activities, we are changing the conversation around dementia and showing people the incredible research underway to overcome it.
Researchers play a vital role in this work, giving insight into research and showcasing the progress being made every day. We encourage all dementia researchers to talk about their work and engage with their local community.
There are lots of ways we can help you share your research and engage with the public. This in turn helps us demonstrate how dementia research will make breakthroughs possible.
Opportunities and resources for engaging with the public
Whenever you talk to the public about your work, we can provide a range of resources to help you. From illustrations and animations to slide sets of key dementia statistics, check out our resources to help you with effective communication and engagement.
We have a template slide deck with ARUK branding if you wish to use for your own presentations.
