Singapore’s population is rapidly ageing. One of the major healthcare challenges that ensue is the rising number of population with dementia. The HEAD Foundation is supporting the 34th International Conference of Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI 2020), as part of our first foray into dementia-related work.
This conference is the longest running and one of the largest international conferences on dementia, attracting over 1,000 delegates from over 100 countries. Featuring a range of international keynote speakers and a high standard of scientific and non-scientific content, the conference enables participants to learn about the latest advances in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, care, and management of dementia. This unique, multi-disciplinary event brings together all those with an interest, including researchers, scientists, clinicians, allied healthcare professionals, people living with dementia, family members, care professionals, and staff and volunteers of Alzheimer associations.
ADI 2020 will be hosted by Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA) as a virtual event from 10-12 December 2020. While it is unfortunate that everyone will not to be able to gather in person in Singapore due to COVID-19 restrictions, the virtual conference format will bring with it a packed programme with a range of networking opportunities. Furthermore, the new format provides an opportunity for automated Spanish and Simplified Chinese subtitles to be offered for the first time during the conference programme.
