On Thursday, June 29th at 12 p.m. PT/3 p.m. ET, Writer, advocate, and international speaker Laurie Scherrer joins Being Patient Live Talks to discuss her experience living with early onset Alzheimer’s and FTD. After being diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s and frontotemporal dementia at age 55, Scherrer started the blog Dementia Daze to share her journey and help others through their dementia journey. Writing about her feelings, challenges, symptoms, and experiences on her blog, she encourages people living with dementia and care partners to explore ways to live beyond dementia. Scherrer is a Dementia Action Alliance Board of Directors member and has been featured in the New York Times, AARP, PBC, and the South Africa Sunday Times.  Join the Live Talk Thursday to learn more about her experience with early-onset Alzheimer’s and FTD and her work fighting dementia stigma.

    1. Hi Karen,
      This will be going live on Being Patient’s Facebook page and unfortunately cannot share the Zoom link. However, I can be sure to email you a reminder about the event and I will be emailing out the transcript and YouTube video when the event is finished. If you have any questions you would like to ask for the Live Talk, let me know and I can be sure to get that question answered. Thanks!
