This June 24 – 26, the Cleveland Clinic will host its International Lewy Body Dementia Conference at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. The conference aims to expand participants’ knowledge about Lewy Body Dementia, fostering a deeper understanding of the disease while promoting further research efforts.
Registration begins Sunday, June 23 from 3 pm – 5 pm for the scientific track of the conference while registration for the patient and caregiver track starts on Monday, June 24 at 7 am. Event times vary for each track. The full schedule of events may be found here.
What to Expect
This conference seeks to educate all affected in any way by Lewy Body Dementia. Discussions and exhibits also aim to share breakthroughs with the scientific and healthcare communities. Broken up into two tracks, participants will register for the patient/caregiver track or the scientific track, depending on their area of focus.
The patient and caregiver track is further broken up into eight separate sections that take place over the course of two days. Presentations cover all facets of Lewy Body Dementia, starting by exploring the science behind LBD, to the diagnosis, to potential therapies for management, and finally, to encourage hope moving forward.
The daily agendas also include presentations by internationally recognized scientists, as well as American neurologists from the Mayo Clinic. Founder and executive director, Norma Loeb, will host a presentation titled, “From Care Partner to Advocate”.
Events like the International Lewy Body Dementia Conference help educate the scientific community and improve caregiver practices. Expanding the LBD community helps patients receive better diagnoses, treatment, and care, sooner rather than later. If you’d like to be a part of this unique event, register here by June 21.
This event will be both informative and engaging. Scientists, healthcare professionals, and researchers will be able to connect, sharing their own discoveries and resources, speeding up diagnosis of LBD and ensuring patients receive the proper treatment. Caregivers can learn new skills, coping mechanisms, and therapies that will improve the quality of life for their loved one suffering with Lewy Body Dementia. Our Lewy Body Dementia Resource Center provides a support helpline that is available seven days a week, from 8 am to 8 pm. Call us with questions, comments, or concerns and we will be happy to help.
