Toronto Memory Program is a community-based facility for dementia care and an active dementia research site that conducts a large number of Phase II and III clinical trials, which are crucial in establishing new treatments.

“Dr. Cohen is doing much-needed work on clinical trials for memory loss,” says Jackson Sayers, CEO, “HCF will be working with Dr. Cohen and Toronto Memory Program to educate and recruit people for upcoming trials, largely by providing video content on options and benefits.”

Dr. Cohen is an assistant professor in the University of Toronto, Division of Neurology and in the Graduate Department of Speech Language Pathology. She acts as consultant neurologist to the North York General Hospital Huntington’s Disease Program in Toronto. “We want more people to be aware of the dementia trials taking place at Toronto Memory Program,” says Sayers. “One, because there are benefits to the individual and his or her family. Two, because these studies provide answers that can lead to earlier detection and more effective treatments in the future.”

Dr. Cohen serves on the Executive Committee of the University of Toronto Behavioural Neurology Section. She is a former member of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario Professional Educational Advisory Committee and has been a mentor for opinion leaders within the Ontario Alzheimer’s Strategy.
