The University of Kentucky UK Sanders Brown Center on Aging is working with the Lewy Body Dementia Association to host a public viewing of the film SPARK: Robin Williams and his Battle with Lewy Body Dementia.
During this time, the film SPARK will highlight key messages that can enhance learning and understanding of LBD, improve diagnosis and detection, and offer LBD families a way to feel connected to resources and support. After viewing the film together, learners are encouraged to discuss the films’ content, key themes and important messages. After the film, please join us for a panel discussion, with experts James E.
