2018 marks our 15th anniversary. To commemorate this occasion, we have created our TH15 IS LEWY movement that signifies 15 years of supporting the LBD community
TH15 IS LEWY is a visual awareness campaign displaying all things related to Lewy body dementia. This includes pictures and videos of doctor’s appointments, proper nutrition, caregiving, spending time with family and friends, and providing support. This campaign is about illustrating the daily lives of those with LBD so be sure to share your photos with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is everything you need to kick off awareness month. Included are downloadable materials (located at the bottom of the page in the attachments section) that you can share on social media and use to distribute around your community.
