There are over 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer's. 15 million people are their unpaid caregivers. The Alzheimer's Association is the largest organization in the world dedicated to dementia education/awareness, caregiver support and research fund-raising.
As a Physician Assistant in Dementia care for over 20 years, daily I watch this disease steal the lives of my patients. I also see the devastating effects on their loved ones. Just as it was with my own father. I am proud to be the team captain of Optum Memory Marchers on the quest for the first Alzheimer's Survivor. Last year, Optum Memory Marchers was the #1 fund-raising team in the country for United Health Group. This year we want to do it again. Your support means so much! Here's how you can help:
1. Join our team as a "walker"- even if you can't attend the Tampa event.
2. Recruit friends, family and coworkers!
4. Walk with us in November!
Please reach out to me if you want to learn more about the Alzheimer's Association and all they have to offer or if you would like to volunteer.
Thank you, Maria
