The introductory Robert Bowles 2021 Dementia Advocate of the Year Award has been given to the Dementia Spotlight Foundation for “their dedication of time, effort and resources in the fight to spread awareness and offer necessary support to individuals and caretakers touched by dementia.” Bowles is a retired pharmacist from Georgia who was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia in 2012 and has advocated for others with similar afflictions since then. dementiaspotlightfoundation.org
