Walking the Talk for Dementia: Diversifying Perspectives to Innovate

Walking The Talk For Dementia Logo

Walking the Talk for Dementia is an innovative, adventurous and immersive experience involving people working, researching and living with dementia.

The project's main aim is to show that people are living with dementia despite the diagnosis, challenges and stigma, and that together we can rethink the way society perceives this community.

Led by Global Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health, Fernando Aguzzoli-Peres and Clara Dominguez, the program will bring together representatives from more than 25 countries on a 50km journey on the world's most famous pilgrimage, Santiago de Compostela, followed by a scientific symposium led by people living with dementia. 


The symposium aims to bring together audience members with different and multiple perspectives on living, studying and researching about dementia. 


Program and registration details will be available shortly but for now please save the date! May 5-6, 2023 in Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
