It is a pleasure to welcome you to the October 2020 Preventing Dementia Massive Open Online Course (MOOC).
The first few days are an introduction period that provides you with the opportunity to log in at mooc.utas.edu.au/profile, enter the course, and familiarise yourself with the Preventing Dementia MOOC site and its various functions. We hope you will take the opportunity to introduce yourself on the Social Space discussion board, and enjoy an introduction to the big question of the course – 'Is dementia prevention possible?'
If you encounter any issues, you can contact us at mooc.utas.edu.au/contact
Over the coming four weeks, you will be introduced to the academic team and guest experts from across the globe, who will explain the current evidence around dementia risk reduction.
The content for Module One, 'Can Dementia be Prevented?' will be available from 8th October, 9:00am AEDT.
