Community Education Requests

Thank you for your interest in helping raise awareness of memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer’s in your local community. With a network of local chapters across the country, the Alzheimer’s Association provides free education to the community at locations such as libraries, hospitals, businesses, community centers and more. Your audience can learn about the signs, symptoms, causes, treatment and care strategies.
