[Registration closed] Evening Seminar -Alzheimer’s Future: Religion, Science and finally (when everything else fails) Policy- (July 25, 2019)
date : 7/12/2019
This seminar will be held in English (No simultaneous translation will be available).
As the world’s population ages, the number of people with dementia continues to increase. Researchers and institutions around the world are working day and night to develop fundamental treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, which is believed to be the most common cause of Alzheimer’s disease, however, we have seen little progress in research and development despite these efforts.
At the same time, the number of people with dementia continues to increase, and many issues such as the shortage of nursing care workers in Japan and other countries are being raised.
In this seminar, we would like to invite Prof. Garrett Mario, a gerontology professor at San Diego State University, to talk about the “Care Roadmap” of dementia to 2050, including Alzheimer’s disease.
Mario D Garrett Ph.D. (Professor of Gerontology, San Diego State University)
