Childhood Dementia Initiative is delivering free information sessions across Australia.
The sessions are ideal for health and social care workers, researchers, parents and policymakers who would like key statistics and a broad understanding of the causes, symptoms and impacts of childhood dementia.
Why come? Because childhood dementia affects 1 in 2800 babies born in Australia. That’s more than better-known conditions like cystic fibrosis. Sadly, approximately 75% of children have a life expectancy of under 18. They and their families face unique and complex challenges. Awareness and understanding are essential to transforming care, research and policy responses to childhood dementia.

8.00 - 9.30 am Monday 18 Sept 2023
