International Lewy Body Dementia Conference 2022
June 15 - June 17
Over the last decade there have been regular global conferences focused on Lewy body dementia, most recently in Las Vegas in 2019. We are delighted that the UK will host the next conference, which will take place in Newcastle upon Tyne from 15-17 June 2022 (with a virtual option).
The conference brings together researchers, academics and medical professionals to discuss the latest developments in Lewy body dementia research and care. It is important that the voices and experiences of people living with dementia and carers are also heard, so the conference will have a distinct strand that is aimed at people living with LBD and their families and carers, and you will be supported to attend and participate, either in person or virtually.
If you are a person living with Lewy body dementia or a carer and are considering attending the conference, these are the benefits that you will experience:
- Hear the latest research developments and the progress we are making in diagnosing and managing Lewy body dementia, and find out how you can participate in research.
- Have the opportunity to meet and network with other people living with dementia and their carers, who will understand what you are going through.
- Hear inspirational speakers who can help you build resilience and maintain positivity as you live with the impact of Lewy body dementia.
