National Talkblack 150321

We had:

Dr Leander Mitchell, Clinical Psychologist, Clinical Neuropsychologist and Senior Lecturer at The University of Queensland talking about how developing culturally appropriate assessments for people living with dementia in the Torres Strait is just one of 12 new projects that will share in nearly $1 million in grants to conduct ground-breaking dementia research. She was awarded a $75,000 Dementia Australia Research Foundation Project Grant and will use the finding to develop tools to measure depression and anxiety in people living with dementia in the Torres Strait.

We also have our regular callers having their say on recent events on the program adding to the conversation.

Have something happening in your community, and you want to talk about it, give us a call on 1800 422 416. Or Give us a text on 0457 140 550!
