Approximately 250,000 Greeks arrived in Australia between the 1940s and 1980s. Sixty years later, they are at high risk of developing cognitive illnesses, such as dementia. The problem is that none of the tests relating to diagnosing dementia are made with this population in mind, which often results in misdiagnosis.
Monash University researcher Mathew Staios is undertaking a PhD on this underresourced and important subject and he needs our help. Mathew is a clinical neuropsychologist and a psychology-teaching associate at Monash University. He is completing his PhD at Monash University, in conjunction with their academic partner, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
Mathew is fundraising to support his PhD research, which will result in the development of new tests to accurately detect dementia and provide culturally appropriate treatment options for the aging Greek Australian community. The goal is to raise $75,000 to sustain this project for a period of three years.
The Australian Hellenic Golf Federation (AHGF) and The Greek Community of Melbourne fully supports such valuable projects and urges all its members to contribute towards this worthwhile cause.
The Australian Hellenic Golf Open this year will dedicate all proceeds to this worthy cause. Your donation will not only raise awareness of cognitive illnesses such as dementia, but will also result in the development of accurate detecting tests that will assist many of the Greek community’s elderly citizens at high risk of developing dementia.
