SPARK: Robin Williams and his Battle with Lewy Body Dementia

March 5 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

The Lewy Body Dementia Association (LBDA) and the producers of Robin’s Wish created a 45-minute
documentary adaptation, “SPARK: Robin Williams and his Battle with Lewy Body Dementia.” View the SPARK trailer below.

This film examines Robin Williams’s battle with undiagnosed Lewy body dementia (LBD) to promote community and professional awareness and education to those affected by Lewy body dementia. This new and fascinating adaptation delves deeper into the disease, its biology, myriad of clinical symptoms, and its impact on both the person with LBD and the primary caregiver.

The CU Alzheimer’s and Cognition Center is working with LBDA to host a free public viewing of the film on March 5, 2021 from 1-3 pm MT.

After viewing the film together, learners are encouraged to discuss the films’ content, key themes, and important messages. To encourage this discussion, after the film is viewed a select group of speakers will discuss the
disease and then will facilitate a Q and A session.

We’d like to invite you to join us for this presentation. This event is virtual, so please register here to receive the link to
