Dementia: Facing the next ten years

10 Mar 2016

David Cameron has described dementia as ‘the key health challenge of this generation’: affecting 800,000 people and costing £23 billion a year, in the next generation numbers will double and costs triple. 

As part of Brighton and Sussex Medical Schools’ (BSMS) tenth anniversary celebrations, this debate will examine dementia from multiple perspectives, concentrating on addressing the challenges we all face and featuring a forum for debate and questions. Chaired by Professor Jon Cohen, the panel will include BSMS Professor Sube Banerjee (author of the National Dementia Strategy); BSMS’s Professor of Clinical Ethics, Bobbie Farsides; and Matthew Lenton, director of Vanishing Point’s Tomorrow.
