The Community and Researcher Engagement (CaRE) committee hosted a webinar on 18 May 2022, "What we know about the brain and how it changes with dementia", which covered a range of relevant topics and perspectives relating to dementia, from the perspectives of those affected by the disease, clinicians, and researchers.
