DESCRIPTION: Every four seconds, someone is diagnosed with dementia. As the world's aging population continues to grow, dementia and optimal nutrition among the elderly are global health and economic challenges. Today, approximately 44 million worldwide live with dementia and by 2050 the estimate will reach 135 million. These alarming statistics have widened dementia research to not only focus on pharmaceutical solutions but to investigate prevention and progression strategies through nutritional interventions.
On March 26-27, nutrition and dementia researchers and practitioners will gather to discuss emerging nutrition research for the prevention and management of dementia. The conference will focus on three aspects of nutrition for aging populations: Nutritional consequences of the aging demographic: epidemiological perspectives; The role of nutrition in dementia prevention; and, the role of nutrition and distinct nutritional requirements in the management of dementia. A networking reception will follow the event.
