UVic launches “Call to Mind” podcast to break stigma around dementia

The University of Victoria has launched a new podcast called “Call to Mind” that focuses on breaking stigmas around dementia. The four-episode series, which includes audio diaries and conversations from people living with dementia and their caregivers, was recorded by the storytellers during the first 18 months of the pandemic. It was made into four 30-minute episodes that address the “narrative scarcity” of the voices of those who are experiencing memory loss and their caregivers. “[T]he ‘Call to Mind’ podcast series demonstrates our commitment to creating a better world though curiosity, engagement and innovation,” said UVic VP Research and Innovation Lisa Kalynchuk. “This new podcast on love and memory loss demonstrates our commitment to community-engaged impact-oriented research.” UVic| CBC Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
