Today AFA welcomed a great group of students from the Young Women's Leadership School of Brooklyn to our Education and Resource Center. The students spent the morning interacting with our staff, learning about Alzheimer's disease and finding out how they could get more involved in the fight against Alzheimer's. We really enjoyed having them visit!
Valentine’s Day is just two days away, and what better gift to give than the gift of care! Contribute in honor of a loved one, in recognition of a caregiver or just to help someone in need. It’s a gift that will keep giving long after Valentine’s Day has passed! Donate here: https://alzfdn.org/support-us/donate/
