Post Join the LBD Awareness Movement!
We Want YOU! Make October, 2011 a "Month to Remember"

We are very excited about the launch of the LBD Awareness Movement . With your help, we CAN make LBD a household word. By joining the movement, you will be part of a network of volunteers, companies and organizations across the country, who are working to bring LBD out of the shadows to place it on equal footing with more well-known neurological conditions.

When you join the movement, you will receive the LBD Awareness Toolkit, full of recommended activities to raise LBD awareness in your community, such as:

• Deliver campaign materials to large primary care practices in your community. These brand new resources have been designed to increase LBD awareness among physicians who treat older adults AND encourage their patients to report LBD symptoms early.

• Outreach to local media to share your personal journey with LBD. No one can tell the story about LBD better than you. You know the painful cost of LBD to your whole family. And you have experienced the unexpected moments of laughter and tenderness that even LBD can't take away. Sharing your story will help make LBD an important cause to the people in your community and will bring comfort to LBD families who no longer feel so alone.

• Organize a community outreach event. Together, we CAN make a difference in your workplace, your family or your community-by educating the general public about LBD.

• Launch or join an LBDA Hub of Hope. By working together with other LBD Awareness Movement members, you can build synergy through your community-based LBD awareness activities and advancement of the LBD cause.

• Organize a fundraiser or special event to raise funds for LBDA. When you help to rasie much-needed support for LBDA's mission, you help build new hope for the 1.3 million families in the U.S. who are affected by this devastating disease.

Join the LBD Awareness Movement here today to receive this valuable tool and other tips for supporting your grassroots volunteer efforts!

By becoming a member of the LBD Awareness Movement, you will strengthen the ongoing national effort to raise awareness among physicians and the general public.

If you have questions about raising LBD awareness in your community, contact us at awareness@lbda.org or 404-935-6444, ext. 104.
