Walking the Talk for Dementia Symposium
Walking the Talk for Dementia: Diversifying Perspectives to Innovate
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, Camino de Santiago, followed by a scientific symposium led by people living with dementia.
In addition, GBHI will be bringing together Atlantic Fellows, that are living and working in Spain, around the Walking the Talk scientific symposium. The aim is to strengthen their network, explore areas of potential collaboration in research and practice and to raise awareness at a national level about the impact that GBHI can have in the region. As an output from this convening, GBHI hopes to identify pathways and projects that the Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health can become mobilized around that will contribute to improving brain health and preventing dementia in Spain.
