A network of dementia researchers, clinicians and carers collaboratively working towards reducing the burden of dementia within NSW.
The Sydney Dementia Network, launched in 2018, seeks to unite dementia researchers, clinicians, carers and patients to accelerate the focus on dementia research within NSW. Led by Professors Glenda Halliday, Sharon Naismith, Clement Loy and Dr Fiona Kumfor, the Network has progressed to ensure improved outcomes for patients while providing opportunities and resources from researchers and clinicians across NSW in prevention, treatment and care of dementia.
