Štefanija Lukic Zlobec (Member)


Štefanija has been the President of the Alzheimer Association of Slovenia since January 2014 and was Vice-President for two years before that. During this time, she successfully guided the association to full membership of both Alzheimer Europe and Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI). Štefanija also initiated the Alzheimer Café gatherings in 2012: these have been a huge success and continue to gain popularity around the country.

Štefanija became involved with dementia when her late husband began developing symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 50. She became active in associations assisting relatives of people with dementia and was also an initiator for the establishment of the Working Group for the Preparation of the National Work Plan for Dementia. This Working Group was established in 2012 by the Ministry of Health.

Štefanija was born in 1949 and studied Economics at the University of Ljubljana. She recently retired from the Slovenian Ministry of Finance after a 20 year career and is fluent in English, French, Italian and Croatian. She was elected to the Alzheimer Europe Board in October 2014.
