MHLP Supported Alzheimer’s Research with a Coffee Break
Yesterday, MHLP teamed up with BC Alzheimer’s society for a Coffee Break to network, spread knowledge and support a fantastic cause. Coffee Break is a national annual fundraiser where friends, families and co-workers gather in communities to raise money for their local Alzheimer Society and spend time together. Many gathered to enjoy a cup of coffee (by donation to Alzheimer’s research) and chat with representatives from MHLP.
MHLP provides programs in Seniors Care and Clinical Education whereupon issues associated with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are extremely relevant. Discussions surrounding care and health are extremely valuable and the MHLP team was excited to connect with so many individuals.
- 5% of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research’s budget is invested in dementia research.
- It is estimated that 70,000 British Columbians are affected by dementia.
- 25,000 new cases of dementia are diagnosed every year.
