Promoting Social Connection: September Forums

In September 2015 we hosted two forums titled Reducing the Risk of Dementia: Promoting Social Connection in Wellington and Dunedin. Social engagement is recognised as one of the key factors that may reduce the risk of dementia. The forums looked at the latest NZ research on the brain, explored the issue of social isolation and highlighted interventions and initiatives to promote social engagement and maintain good brain health.

This was the programme:

Wellington 22 September Wharewaka, Wellington waterfront
Dunedin 24 September Dunedin Art Gallery
