Fresh Thinking at Fitz: The value of memories

This Thursday's conversation will feature Fitz alumnus and sporting star Alastair Hignell CBE (History, 1974) and Dr Duncan Street, Clinical Research Fellow at the Cambridge Centre for Parkinson's Plus, Specialist Registrar in Clinical Neurology and current Fitz PhD.

They will be talking about the positive role that memory can play in supporting people with dementia, depression and loneliness. Alastair will be introducing his work with the Sporting Memories Network (https://www.sportingmemoriesnetwork.com) and Duncan will give a practical insight into the memory clinic at Addenbrookes.
