Join Dementia Research ChampionsLincolnshire Launch Event
The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) in partnership with the Alzheimer's Society, Alzheimer's Research UK, and Alzheimer's Scotland, have developed Join Dementia Research, an easy-to-use service which allows people to register their interest in dementia research, so that they can be contacted about relevant studies by research teams around the UK.
Join Dementia Research delivers a new opportunity for people to play their part in beating dementia by connecting researchers with people who want to participate in studies. It is a key part of the Government's Challenge on Dementia, which aims to make the UK the best place to live with dementia.
JDR Champions are a national network of patients, carers, researchers, research support staff and health/social care professionals, who are positive about dementia research. They have volunteered to work with the NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) and their Local Clinical Research Network (LCRN) to raise awareness about Join Dementia Research locally in their personal and professional communities and at national conferences and events.
In Lincolnshire we are taking an ambitious and innovative approach to engage with organisations across the county and develop a vibrant local network of JDR Champions – please come along to our Lincolnshire Launch event and find out how you as an individual and/or representative for your organisation can get involved. Full details of the event are in the flyer attached.
