We are also excited to report that Bianca and Jo, along with Dr Andrew Gilbert, have recently been awarded a grant from the Department of Health to develop animated films on dementia prevention for CALD communities. The films will be developed in the current MP languages of Arabic, Cantonese, Mandarin, Hindi, Tamil, Italian, Greek, Vietnamese and Spanish, and animated by our partners at OOI communications. The project will be managed by Dr Samantha Croy.
In our research with communities, the most common question we are asked is how to prevent dementia. The ADAPT films will provide much needed dementia prevention information for Australia’s culturally and linguistically diverse groups.
