Talking About Dementia
with Dr David Hogan
In January, Dr Hogan led a very informative presentation about Alzheimer's and other types of dementia.
In an effort to increase our capacity to provide education to the community, the Alzheimer Society of Calgary engaged Full Swing Productions, a local production company, to film this presentation.
If you didn't make it out to see Dr Hogan in January, or if you are looking to expand your knowledge about dementia, the video below is a great resource.
