Speaker: Dr Brigid Ryan, Chair of the Younger Onset Dementia Aotearoa Trust, Leader, New Zealand Genetic Frontotemporal Dementia Study
Blurb: We spoke with Dr. Brigid Ryan at the National Dementia Conference this year. She shared some fascinating insights on the importance of noting changes in a person early and the challenge for GPs on picking up on some of those very subtle changes which occur in people living with Dementia. She believes the key to combatting Dementia is early detection. We were also interested in her thoughts on the impact of having specialist younger onset dementia clinics and some of the international research being done in this space.
