    The Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre is a global research leader on the risk factors for dementia and has recently launched the ISLAND Project — the largest dementia prevention project in the world.

    Through the ISLAND Project, we want to equip members of our Tasmanian community with the knowledge and information to self-manage personal risk factors that are known to increase risk of dementia if they are not managed, especially from middle age onwards. Many of these risk factors are prevalent in our population and we want to help our community members to reduce their risk of dementia and improve their overall health and wellbeing.

    We are seeking your support to help us sign up over 10,000 Tasmanians who are over 50 years of age for this project. Any Tasmanian over 50 years of age can register their interest at https://islandproject.utas.edu.au/, this link also provides further information about the ISLAND Project and its aims.

    Please contact island@dementia.utas.edu.au or (03) 6266 6977 if you have any queries.
