WW-FINGERS Global Scientific Coordinating Center joins the conversation at Lausanne IX

We are thrilled to confirm that Dr Francesca Mangialasche, Executive Director, World-Wide FINGERS Global Scientific Coordinating Center (WW-FINGERS GSCC), will be speaking at Lausanne IX! A leading global stage for solutions-oriented dialogue on Alzheimer’s disease, Dr Mangialasche will be co-leading a working group to identify opportunities to integrate risk reduction and therapeutic intervention to achieve higher quality care for current and future Alzheimer’s Disease patients.

Additionally, Dr Chi Udeh-Momoh, Biomarker Lead for the WW-FINGERS GSCC, will be participating in Build to Scale: Platforms for Global Reach panel.

The 2022 Lausanne Workshop takes place on 01-03 November 2022 and is the ninth in a series of annual Alzheimer’s convenings with the goal to stop Alzheimer’s by 2025. The workshop began in 2014 as a response to the challenge articulated at the UK G8 Dementia Summit to stop Alzheimer’s by 2025. The goal was reinforced at the First WHO Ministerial Conference on Global Action Against Dementia in 2015.

Over the past eight years, Lausanne has become a global platform to cross-sector Alzheimer’s stakeholder to identify challenges, set solution paths, measure progress, and hold each other accountable to act.

The Lausanne Workshop is organised under the auspices of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and supported by the Global CEO Initiative on Alzheimer’s Disease (CEOI), Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) and World Economic Forum (WEF).
