Vision

Dementia is a complex condition resulting from multiple influences (genetic, biological, environmental, nutritional, toxic, social, economic) that vary according to the origin of the person. We need to adapt dementia prevention and care strategies to each country and society.

Strategy

Laurent is studying population surveys of aging about persons living in more than 30 countries from 4 continents (America, Africa, Europe, Asia) to identify the most important risk factors for dementia according to the country.

Motivation

Dementia care is well developped in France but dementia prevention has been neglected: my clinical and research work aims at educating people about dementia prevention, targetting the most important risk factors.
