Internal and external communications were also on the agenda, as the members talked about setting up a private Facebook page and updating the Group’s leaflet.

They also conferred with Alzheimer Europe colleagues about contributing articles to AE’s publications. The delegates also discussed the growing role of EWGPWD members in AE work, such as the Clinical Trial and Ethics projects. Finally, they talked about the upcoming elections in the European Parliament and also in the EWGPWD.
