Melting Pot Lunch: the heart-brain link in dementia
Join our online conversation with Oxford University neuroscientist Sana Suri on the heart-brain link in dementia. Bring your own lunch!
While it has become trickier for us to sit down for lunch face to face, we are taking our traditional Melting Pot Lunch format into the digital age.
Join neuroscientist Sana Suri from the University of Oxford for our online Melting Pot Lunch. Sana will be starting our conversation about the heart-brain link in dementia.
Every 3 seconds, someone in the world develops dementia. Obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure can increase our risk of developing dementia, whereas education, social and physical activity may be beneficial. We will discuss when and how these risk and resilience factors affect the ageing brain. We will also consider how researchers, clinicians and policymakers can improve quality of life in older age.
Dr Sana Suri’s scientific outreach has been recognised by the Association of British Science Writers, the Alzheimer’s Society, and in UK Parliament. Read more about her work.
12:30-2pm (bring your own lunch) to this online discussion.
