Upcoming Event:

Talking About Dementia with Dr David Hogan on Saturday, January 25

As our population ages and more people are impacted, it is important to know how to evaluate the latest research on new treatments, how to improve care, and what we can do to reduce our risk.

This event is taking place at the Delta Hotel Calgary South from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, January 25.
