AGI’s Marva Whyte 2017 Alzheimer Awareness Conference

Do you have questions about Alzheimer’s and Dementia? You’re not alone. Dementia and how the disease is affecting peoples’ lives is something we hear a lot about these days, but many of us don’t know that much it.

Unravelling Dementia through Medicine and Science

On Tuesday, January 18th at 6pm, Alzheimer Groupe (AGI) presents the Marva Whyte 2017 Alzheimer Awareness Conference, featuring Dr. Serge Gauthier, the Director of the McGill University Research Centre for Studies in Aging, and renowned Scientist and Author, Dr. Joe Schwarcz.

They’ll be sharing the latest information on the treatment and prevention of dementia from a medical and a scientific perspective. There will be a question and answer period for the Doctors at the end of the evening.


The Alzheimer Awareness Conference takes place at Hotel Ruby Foo’s, 7655 Decarie Blvd, Montreal.

Alzheimer Groupe (AGI) is committed to providing ongoing education and raising awareness about Alzheimer’s and dementia in order to increase the public’s understanding of the disease, its effects on the brain, and what we can do about improving quality of life.   AGI holds two conferences per year and a monthly lecture series in Montreal and on the West Island about dementia, which are of interest to family and professional caregivers and the public at large.  AGI also offers a full range of support services and programs all those touched by the disease, well as specific training courses for family caregivers.
