101118 ASR DC on Responsible Media Coverage

Welcome to Dementia Chats, where our experts are those living with various types of cognitive impairment. 

Today we had a very interesting conversation about how media impacts public beliefs about dementia.  How media can assist in reducing dementia stigmas and report realistic outcomes, not just what is pitched to them.

Listen to this interesting conversation which gives ideas to improve reporting and give hope to those diagnosed or caring for someone who is.  Learn how media can give voice to those diagnosed and their families along with all the non-pharmaceutical supports and methods to assist them along with research to control symptoms and be a potential cure.

Our Guests:

Laurie Scherrer

Harry Urban

Bob Savage

Michael Ellenbogen

Lisa Head

Bill Walsh

Our Facilitators:
