2019 Dementia Wellington Symposium
- Written by Dementia Wellington
Thank you to everyone who attended the 2019 Dementia Wellington Symposium!
With a focus on how to live well with dementia and the latest research into brain health, the symposium on Thursday 2 May was a fantastic day. It was great to see so many people there, and particularly the many Dementia Wellington clients who attended. All the speakers gave excellent, interesting presentations and everyone enjoyed the opportunity to learn, to meet new people and to reacquaint with colleagues and friends working in the sector.
Dementia Wellington would particularly like to thank Westpac for their kind sponsorship of the symposium, and their ongoing commitment to being a Dementia-friendly organisation.
