October is LBD Awareness Month
Standing Strong with LBDA means being counted as someone who understands the importance of making how important it is for Lewy body dementia (LBD) to become a household word.
The LBD Awareness Movement is a national, grass roots effort to increase LBD awareness in the general public and medical profession. Together we are making October “A Month to Remember” by combining the efforts of LBD families and friends.
Thank you to all of LBDA's incredible LBD Awareness Movement Volunteers who donated their time and talents to create awareness of LBD in their communities!
Save the date for October 2013
LBD Awareness Month!
Recruitment Begins in May!
The Lewy Body Dementia Association is dedicated to providing comprehensive information, education and support for the 1.3 million people afflicted by Lewy body dementias. Your grassroots efforts to educate the public locally will make a profound difference!

- Standing Strong with LBDA and register as an Awareness Movement participant
- Organize a fundraiser or community outreach event for LBDA
- Distribute materials to your local physicians’ offices and/ or local media

Community Fundraising Events
We invite all LBD Awareness Movement Volunteers interested in organizing a fundraiser in their community to sign up for Community Fundraising Event Trainings.
This is for first-time fundraising event organizers with LBDA. During this 1-hour interactive session, you will learn the basics about how to organize community-based fundraising events and learn about virtual fundraising opportunities. Participation requires both Internet access AND dialing into a teleconference call.
If you are planning a Community Fundraising Event, please contact Davida Morgan Washington, Director of Development at email@example.com, 404-935-6444 ext. 103.
Your support can strengthen LBDA's ability to shine a ray of hope for LBD families, so that one day, Robert's family does not have to face LBD without a clear diagnosis, Sue's family will receive a solid understanding of the challenges ahead of them, and Paul can have unfettered access to physicians knowledgeable about the disease.
If you have questions about raising LBD awareness in your community, contact contact Elizabeth Patrick, Marketing and Communications Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-935-6444, ext. 101.
