The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected older persons with comorbidities, with a high fatality rate in this group.
In this webinar, we will review the basics of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19); what is known so far about its effects on the body and on the brain; and on outcomes when infection occurs in persons living with dementia. We will discuss the ethics of allocating scarce medical resources during a pandemic, and the effects it may have on access to care for persons with dementia.
Registration is FREE, but space is limited
