Turn Five Minutes into Community-wide LBD Awareness

Turn Five Minutes into Community-wide LBD Awareness

As with many families affected by LBD, you may be frustrated by having to explain to everyone in your community, including some medical professionals, exactly what Lewy body dementia is.  And that needs to change.

In as little as five minutes, you can help LBDA inform your local media that October is A Month To Remember by helping us expand our national contact list of journalists who cover health-related topics. 

We are asking LBD families to identify at least one journalist in their community who would like to receive email press releases from the Lewy Body Dementia Association.  In larger news organizations, these people may be called health or science reporters; smaller news organizations may not have one person dedicated to health topics, so you may want to ask for the assignment editor or a senior editor who covers health topics.

You will want to gather the following information: 

  • What type of media outlet is this?  (Newspaper/Radio Station/TV station)
  • Company Name
  • Journalist Name
  • Title (i.e. health writer, senior editor)
  • Phone Number
  • Email Address
  • City
  • State

To share your local journalist's contact information with LBDA, please click here and upload the information by September 14, 2011. And LBDA will do the rest.

Thank you for your help in bringing LBD out of the shadows!
