Watching and supporting the fab dementia schools project…

Read Dr Karim Saad’s new blog for all the news: Pioneer School Leads The Way In Transforming Dementia Public Awareness.

It is with great excitement that #dementiachallengers are following the progress of the dementia awareness programme in schools, pioneered by Dr Karim Saad. This was first mentioned on Day 4 of  our “in my shoes” when Karim wrote his popular guest post : ‘Let’s avoid graduating another generation ashamed of the D word!’ This blogpost has now been SHARED nearly 350 times and has had hundreds of views.

Last week, the government launched a new ambitious project to recruit one million “Dementia Friends” and I’m sure the schools project will play a really important role in this. We all know how influential young people can be, challenging attitudes in their families and communities…

As an innovator and someone genuinely pushing the boundaries to create transformational change, it is significant that Dr Saad made time to write a guest post in Week One of our series. Now his own blog at http://karims3d.com shares progress about this ground-breaking project which #dementiachallengers intend to promote globally! 🙂

“Small actions can have large consequences.” Karim Saad.
