Hello All! My name is Dee Clemmons Lassiter! I am an Atlanta native and a proud graduate of Spelman College. Alzheimer's disease affects over 6 million Americans and almost two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer's are women. I have always been an advocate for women and I developed an interest in Alzheimer's disease after reading a book called "Still Alice" in 2008. This book touched me and gave me an idea of how the early onset of Alzheimer's can affect not just the individual fighting the disease but their family members as well. My life mission has always been to serve underserved populations and work hard to eliminate disparities within vulnerable communities. In 2022, I pledge to dedicate my mission to those who are affected by Alzheimer's disease. I am excited to join the Alzheimer's Association as a dancer in the Annual Dancing Stars of Atlanta.
I have some dance experience as I cheered in high school and I have two daughters who have danced competitively for several years. My youngest daughter is a Mercer University Clinical Psychology Doctoral Student and my eldest daughter was on Broadway in the Lion King. For more than 12 years I have co-owned a dance studio (Broadway Performing Arts) to continue teaching and impacting others through dance. As we say on Broadway, let's end this disease and "Dance For Life!" Please vote for me and thank you for your support of Alzheimer's research.
