@Wigan_DAA (Sat 30 Nov):
Visit the ‘Under One Roof’ event 9:30 -1:30pm today at #Wigan Life Centre North and register to take part in #dementia research @beatdementia

Did you know you don’t have to be living with dementia to take part in research?
Did you know #dementia research is not just about drug trials?

Register your interest in taking part in vital research today. Anyone 18 or over in the UK can sign up and make a difference, whether you have dementia or not.
