International Dementia with Lewy Bodies Conference - in Miami!

I know, I know, what caregiver has time to attend a conference for three days - or the money to pay for it? However, it IS in Miami, which is a great place to attend a conference, and since I've been helping to plan the caregiver side of things, you can be sure it's going to be good.

An interesting feature will be the scientists, who are there to present papers and talk to each other, however, several of them are being shanghai'ed to talk to care families and give the latest info, research, drug potentials, etc. Worth going for that! There will also be many - short - workshops, with plenty of time to rest and talk to other families in between, and lots of really interesting speakers, many of whom have been caregivers so they know whereof they speak. And, of course, the Miami sun - in December!

It's being hosted by the Mayo clinic and here is the web link if you think you might be interested. Go to the sidebar and click on the Patient and Care Partner Track.
