An important announcement about the AlzForum webinar on DLB
The Alzheimer Research Forum, http://www.AlzForum.org
, is the web's most dynamic scientific community dedicated to understanding Alzheimer's disease and related disorders like Lewy body dementias.
Their upcoming event, Betwixt and Intermixed-Dementia With Lewy Bodies has generated a tremendous response from the caregiver community, including some 90 questions on LBD diagnosis and treatment submitted from caregivers.
With this event, the Alzheimer's Research Forum aims to increase awareness of dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) among scientists and physicians, their primary audience. As such, the panel of LBD experts will focus largely on scientific research topics.
While the live event may address some clinical issues at a high level, at only one hour long it will be impossible to address the many caregiver questions that have been submitted. To ensure your questions receive the attention they deserve, the AlzForum editors have assembled them in a caregiver comment page and will be asking the panelists and the Lewy Body Dementia Association to respond offline to these questions
after the event.
Some of this information can be found on the LBDA website now. Visit http://www.lbda.org/category/4115/publications.htm
to read our many publications or watch caregiver educational videos on LBD at http://www.lbda.org/category/4116/multi ... ources.htm
For those who are registered for this event, only questions on the scientific topics should be submitted DURING the actual event. If you are a patient or caregiver and have questions in addition to those already posted, you are invited to submit them ahead of time via the AlzForum website at http://www.alzforum.org/contact.asp
LBDA will work with the AlzForum editors to provide the fastest response to the most frequently asked questions so that LBD families now and in the future can all benefit from the answers. Due to the volume of questions, the reality of limited resources, and the availability of our LBD experts, there will be a modest delay before the answers are posted online.
We appreciate your patience while AlzForum and LBDA work together to develop the answers you need.
The LBDA Team
