The Alzheimer’s Association International Conference 2017 (AAIC17) is the largest international meeting dedicated to advancing dementia science. It’s taking place this week, running from Sunday 16th – Thursday 20th July, here in the UK.

At this annual meeting, researchers and clinicians share discoveries in basic and translational dementia research.

With lots of new research being presented, our partners at Alzheimer’s Research UK and Alzheimer’s Society have been looking at what some of these findings mean for people with dementia, now and in the future.

Here’s what they had to say about four studies looking at links between diet and dementia, presented yesterday.
