June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, and we’re joining the Alzheimer’s Association and others in efforts to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Each day we’ll be posting about Alzheimer’s on our Twitter and Facebook pages. And, throughout the month, we will share articles and resources here on the blog related to Alzheimer’s symptoms, treatment, and resources.
We hope that you’ll join us in discussions about Alzheimer’s and in sharing your own stories on social media by using hashtags #EndAlz or #EndAlzheimers. Follow us on Twitter or Facebook for daily discussions. You can also follow the Alzheimer’s Association on Twitter to see what others are sharing as well!
