As a physician, Dr. Walker has cared for Alzheimer’s patients and their family members. She has seen the many ways this disease affects not just those who suffer from Alzheimer’s Disease, but their loved ones as well. She believes Middle Georgia is lucky to have The Alzheimer's Association to provide so many great resources such as support groups and care coordination. But they depend on the support of everyone to be able to offer such programming. Dr. Walker is doing her part and you can do yours by voting for her!
