Robin’s Wish is a compelling film biography of much-loved Robin Williams. It weaves together the untold love story of his marriage to Susan Schneider Williams, his untimely suicide, his misunderstood disease, and his universal experience moving through pain in the search for healing and joy. It highlights the devastating neurological illness he didn’t know he had: Lewy Body Dementia (LBD)*.

SUNY will be hosting the symposium and screening at the SUNY Global Center in New York City.

We are gathering SUNY research professionals to participate in the Lewy Body Dementia Mini-Symposium. We will hear from expert, Dr. Vicki Shanker, (movement disorder specialist at Beth Israel Mount Sinai Medical Center) and others. Participants will then join in round-table discussions with peers.

This special program and film offers a significant opportunity to bring crucial awareness of LBD to our community and the world!

*LBD is the second most common form of progressive dementia after Alzheimer’s disease and affects more than 1.4 million Americans. It is widely misdiagnosed as it can mimic Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, or a psychiatric disorder.
