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 a co-captain of Optum Memory Marchers on the quest for the first Alzheimer's Survivor. I am very excited about the community outreach the Association is doing and their backing of promising research/medication development to battle Dementia. Your support means so much! Here's how you can help:
1. Join our team as a "walker"- it is free to register!
2. Recruit friends, family and coworkers!
4. Walk with us in November, wherever you are!
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
