Ita Buttrose was the MC and is also the Ambassador for Alzheimers Australia. Dr Ron Petersen is one of the most influential men in the world when it comes to dementia.
He was President Ronald Reagan’s personal physician and his written 700 papers and 5 books. He is also on the International Dementia Council.
I posed a burning question to both of them on the microphone regarding what advocates can do to influence Govt to provide more money for the elderly, which was challenging:-)
It was great to meet Dementia Downunder members Martina, Rachel, Chrystal and Heather. Plus catch up with Ian Gladstone, Nicki Peaston, Helen Brauer, Theanne, David Coles , Jen plus the Alzheimers Australia Team.
Today was another amazing day with some of the international heavyweights in dementia care and research.
