Held at the Queensland Brain Institute, this public forum provides updates on CJCADR research and discoveries with regard to potential treatments, clinical trials, care and policy directions for dementia. This anticipated event highlighted the cutting-edge research that is building our understanding of dementia risk factors and biology and progressing the push for improved treatments.



Keynote Speaker: Pat Welsh

Sports Editor and Media Identity

Pat Welsh is a Sports Editor at Seven News Brisbane, recently celebrating 40 years with the network and has become a popular and trusted figure to his legion of fans.

Now, in partnership with Dementia Australia, he uses his media profile to bring much-needed awareness to brain health. 

"Watching my father live with dementia showed me how important programs and services were to my mother and him in helping them retain their quality of life," he said. 

"I want to use my profile to help eliminate the stigma around brain health and start a conversation in the community. Dementia is the second leading cause of death in Australia, and we all need to understand what we can do to reduce our risk."
