COVID-19 Infection in Persons Living With Dementia

June 30, 2020 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected older persons with comorbidities, with a high fatality rate in this group.

In this webinar, we will review the basics of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19); what is known so far about its effects on the body and on the brain; and on outcomes when infection occurs in persons living with dementia. We will discuss the ethics of allocating scarce medical resources during a pandemic, and the effects it may have on access to care for persons with dementia.

Registration is FREE, but space is limited

This integrated KTE webinar event is brought to you by brainXchange in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Canada and the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA).
