In celebration of Dementia Action Week at the University of Salford has delivered a number of public engagement events in order to prompt change and education surrounding Dementia.
Events included ‘The Power of Music’ with an afternoon of interactive music performances and a public discussion featuring actor & alumnus Christopher Eccleston and a panel of experts within the health and media sector, to debate the portrayal of dementia in the media and its impact on our society.
Yesterday we did a ‘Sportathon’ where students, staff and visitors of the University used equipment from our gym on campus to do as many km as possible, for the number of people in Salford living with Dementia.
Together we reached 308km and raised over £300 thanks to match-funding by our Santander branch on campus!
The University also opened its doors for a tour our ground-breaking science laboratories. This Public engagement event is sponsored by Alzheimer’s Research UK and included interactive demonstrations, followed by panel discussion focused on advancements on biomedical research.
Thank you for your support!
As we come to the end of our campaign, please keep sharing and encouraging other to make a difference TODAY.
