Alzheimer’s Foundation of America
The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America’s 2020 national Educating America Tour is kicking off on Feb. 25 with a free Alzheimer’s and caregiver educational conference at the University of New Mexico.
The conference, which is open to everyone, is designed to connect people with information about Alzheimer’s disease, brain health, and dementia care giving. Participants have the opportunity to interact with Alzheimer’s experts, ask questions, network, and obtain a free memory screening.
“More than 41,000 New Mexico residents are living with Alzheimer’s disease; many others are caring for a family member with Alzheimer’s. As those numbers grow, it’s critically important to connect people with information that can help them if Alzheimer’s enters their lives,” said Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr., AFA’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “This conference will help individuals learn about Alzheimer’s disease, caring for someone who has Alzheimer’s and support resources that are available to help. We invite everyone to attend.”
