Fifty-five million people worldwide live with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. This number is expected to keep rising to reach 78 million by 2030. If we don’t act now to slow down this increase, health-care systems around the world will be put under enormous pressure. Most importantly, this would mean more people suffering, either from having the disease or from caring for a loved one affected by it. Knowing that a large portion of Alzheimer’s cases, the most common cause of dementia, can be attributed to modifiable risk factors, there is a lot we can do to dampen this increase, both through lifestyle changes at an individual level and through policy changes at a systemic level.

The panelists will share their expertise on brain health, aging, dementia, and Canadian initiatives for dementia prevention, especially through the use of lifestyle interventions. We will also discuss concrete ways in which these interventions can be implemented and the barriers that must be lifted in order to effectively implement them. Some examples include psychological barriers to changing lifestyle habits, social determinants of health, and health inequities.
