CRST has been collaborating with the local associations of The Alzheimer Society of Finland for several years. The Alzheimer Society of Finland is a non-profit organisation providing help and assistance for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. Together we have organized several public events, where our experts have been giving lectures on the health of brain and memory, the prevention and current treatments of memory disorders, and the research of new treatments.
The most recent event was organized on November 22 in Salo, which is a small city situated in Southwest Finland, midway between Helsinki and Turku. CRST was represented by experts Professor Juha Rinne and Professor Mika Scheinin, whose lectures attracted a large crowd of about 260 people.
Neurology and brain disorders, i.e., illnesses such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases are one of our largest focus areas. Every year, dozens of Alzheimer patients and their relatives participate in clinical drug studies conducted by CRST. Memory and brain diseases affect a large part of the population, and CRST wants to contribute to raising the public’s awareness of these topics.
