To CAREGIVERS — Live Webinar: Betwixt and Intermixed—Dementia With Lewy Bodies

Friends,

I wanted to pass along an exciting announcement about an upcoming webinar on dementia with Lewy bodies, by the Alzheimer’s Research Forum.  This is free to the public, so please pass the word!

Live Webinar: Betwixt and Intermixed—Dementia With Lewy Bodies

By some estimates, some one to two million people in the U.S. alone are suffering from dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), a disease that combines features of AD and of PD with additional symptoms that arise from their combined protein pathologies. All this adds up to a double whammy of a neurodegenerative disease, and researchers from both AD and PD proper are developing an active interest to understand it, diagnose it better and earlier, and find molecular or imaging biomarkers. Join DLB experts Ian McKeith, Brit Mollenhauer, James Galvin, James Leverenz, and Walter Schulz-Schaeffer for a discussion of the large and often overlooked overlap between Alzheimer and Parkinson diseases. Join us on Monday, 15 June 2009, noon to 1 p.m. EST for this Webinar on dementia with Lewy bodies.

Thanks,

Angela Taylor
