A public talk from the Ontario Brain Institute September 15, 2014
How can we get science, industry and government to align their goals, work more closely, fund more effectively, and turn the global crisis of Alzheimer’s into an opportunity for healthy aging and innovation? George Vradenburg knows. The renowned American lawyer and media and technology executive created USAgainstAlzheimer’s and The Global CEO Initiative on Alzheimer’sDisease (CEOi) to change “business-as-usual”. Its goal is to speed new treatments to those of us at risk for or living with Alzheimer’s. He serves on the US Advisory Council on Alzheimer’s and on UK Prime Minister Cameron’s World Dementia Council. George Vradenburg will speak about the need for urgency, goal-setting, and teamwork to defeat this global Alzheimer’s epidemic. His open public talk is hosted by the Ontario Brain Institute (OBI) as part of a Toronto conference organized by OBI, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and, the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation (IHPME).
