Understanding, Beliefs and Treatment of Dementia in Pakistan: Dissemination Event

Would you like to learn what people in Pakistan think about dementia, and its potential implications of these findings both here and abroad?

Prof Asghar Zaidi (University of Oxford) and Dr Nicolas Farina (Brighton and Sussex Medical School) are hosting an event that sets out to share some of the findings about a recently completed study exploring perceptions of dementia amongst key stakeholders in Pakistan.

There will an opportunity for attendees to share their own thoughts and experiences through a panel discussion which will include Dr Sahdia Parveen (University of Bradford) and Ken Bluestone (Age International).

This event is open to the general public, service users, academics, and clinicians.  It will take place on the 28th February, 13:30 to 15:30, at the Carlisle Business Centre in Bradford.
