A 12-hour non-stop livestream will raise money for dementia charities and provide insight into the latest research.

Adam Smith is hosting the discussion featuring more than 60 researchers and special guests.

The event is raising money for four charities, including PIF members Alzheimer’s Research UK and Alzheimer’s Society.

It is aimed at anyone with an interest in dementia, including healthcare professionals, clinicians, researchers, people living with dementia and their families. 

Adam will be interviewing researchers in small groups throughout the day, covering everything from prevention and diagnosis to the latest treatments and improvements in care.

The event, which takes place from 9am on Friday, 2 December, will be streamed free of charge on YouTube.
