LBD Video Series: You Asked, Leading Experts Answered

May 24 11:45am | Nick Rethemeier | @nrethemeier | Comments (17)

Over the course of several weeks, The Hub will launch a series of videos focused on Lewy Body Dementia. You will hear from experts at Mayo as well as collaborating partners presenting on LBD and ways to manage symptoms and improve quality of life for the person with dementia and their caregivers.

This week's LBD video is an excerpt from the May 3rd Lewy Body Dementia Knowledge and Support Summit. Moderated by Dr. Philip Tipton of the Mayo Clinic, Drs. Brad Boeve, Neill Graff Radford, and Tanis Ferman of the Mayo Clinic, and Dr. Kimiko Domoto-Reilly of the University of Washington answer questions submitted by you via the Dementia Hub, touching on topics ranging from diagnosis,  sleep, medication, and more.

New videos will be posted on The Hub each week. Stay tuned for more engaging content!

Very useful and understandable informätion!
