OPERATION BOOT ALZHEIMER'S

Did you know that veterans are at an increased risk for Alzheimer's Disease? Stress, traumatic experiences and head injuries are common among our nation's veterans. This can take a toll on the brain and increase the likelihood that they will develop a brain-related disease. It is critical that we stand watch and look out for, and support our veterans.


Your Service, Your Health, Our Focus

Cost: Free

This program is designed for veterans and their families wanting to learn more about memory loss, Alzheimer's disease, and how the Alzheimer's Association can help them. For more information please contact Melanie Adams, Director of Education & Outreach at madams@alz.org.
