Public health campaigns targeting lifestyle approaches towards brain health for older adults are promising. However, most campaigns do not support individuals from multicultural backgrounds.

The Western Sydney district represents a large multicultural environment, with 54.1% of households speaking a non-English language (compared to the NSW average of 26.5%).

Funded by Dementia Australia and the Australian Association of Gerontology, this study will work with older multicultural adults to co-design a program to encourage healthy brain lifestyles.

What this project involves

Join several workshops to help us design a lifestyle prevention program that understands your needs and cultural background:

  • Each workshop will last around 1-1½ hours
  • Participants will be reimbursed $20 for your time.
