The registration period for “DIVULGAMENTE” workshops, developed by Fundación Barrié and Federación Alzhéimer Galicia, has begun.

 

26/09/2019 | Vigo, Chantada y Santiago de Compostela

Divulgamente is an awareness-raising cross-generational project from the Alzheimer Umbrella Network 4.0 program carried out since 2013 by Fundación Barrié in collaboration with Federación Alzhéimer Galicia. Its main goal is to show in a dynamic way what is dementia and how it affects the brain, bringing the reality of this illness that affects nearly 100,000 people only in Galicia closer to young people.

The project has three phases:

The first phase consists of an educational talk “Conocer mejor el Alzheimer” (Know Alzheimer Better) by Doctor Carlos Spuch, a relevant neurologist in the field of dementia research in Galicia.

The second phase consists of raising awareness in the classrooms, in which professionals from the area’s reference association will visit schools to explain their daily jobs with people with neurodegenerative dementia.

Lastly, students will visit an Alzheimer’s care center to learn first-hand about the activities carried out and they also will be able to participate in these activities, promoting cross-generational relationships.

Chosen towns this year are Vigo, Santiago de Compostela and Chantada. Appointed days for the talks will be October 21st, 22nd and 24th.

Registration period open until October 3rd on this link.
