Post subject:  Thurs 5/28 evening, Webinar on Gait & Balance in PSP/CBD

I saw the following announcement from CurePSP (the Society for PSP) recently. While most of what will be said at this upcoming webinar will be about PSP and CBD as those dealing with LBD have many of the same gait and balance problems that those with PSP and CBD have, you may benefit from participating in this webinar. The last webinar* was on swallowing and speech problems; much of this related to LBD as well.

Note that even if you can only phone in to join the webinar and can't access the online slides, you can still get something out of it.
