Jan Oyebode is a Professor of Dementia Care at the University of Bradford. Her current research focuses on how the impact of dementia is influenced by diversity, whether it’s their diagnosis, age of onset, or ethnicity, among others. Jane led the post-diagnostic workstream of The Angela Project on young-onset dementia and is a member of the Young Dementia Network national steering committee.
