Each of the Walks is dedicated to an Honoree — a person who has been impacted by Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia.

This Investors Group Walk for Memories is dedicated to Dr. Lynn Beattie.


Dr. Lynn Beattie, 2014 Honoree for Vancouver Investors Group Walk for Memories

Dr. Lynn Beattie is Professor Emeritus at the University of British Columbia. She is former Director of the UBC Hospital Clinic for Alzheimer disease and related disorders (UBCH CARD) and until her retirement from practice, saw many patients at the clinic.

Dr. Beattie has been involved with a number of research initiatives. These have included a number of clinical drug trials in Alzheimer’s disease mainly looking at psychological resilience and well-being of spousal caregivers of persons with dementia, development of psychosocial indicators of oral health-related quality of life in three ethnic groups, genetic epidemiological study of Alzheimer’s disease, brain power, resistance training and cognitive function in older women. She continues to participate in some projects and sits as the Chair of the Research Policy Committee and on the Board of Alzheimer Society of Canada.

Thanks for Walking Vancouver — for Dr. Lynn Beattie and the more than 70,000 individuals and families in B.C. who are living with dementia.
