Raising the Hope is a truly special event that will engage and inspire our community to join the Alzheimer’s Association in providing quality care, support and education to individuals and families impacted by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia.
This year we are pleased to announce that Barry Petersen, Emmy-award winning CBS news correspondent, will be our guest speaker. Mr. Petersen is the author of "Jan's Story", about his wife who was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's at the age of 55.
Join us and hear the personal stories of Alzheimer's Association clients, volunteers and staff as they provide insight into the wonderful work of our Association and the difference it has made in their lives.
We are currently seeking individuals to serve as Table Hosts. Table Hosts are what makes Raising the Hope successful. The personal bond between our Table Hosts and the guests they invite provide the Alzheimer’s Association the opportunity to present information about the valuable services, research, and patient advocacy delivered right here in our community.
Table Hosts fill a table with nine guests, or a half-table with four guests, including friends, co-workers, family members, neighbors and clients who would be interested in hearing more about the Alzheimer’s Association and supporting our cause.
For more information about the event, sponsorsorship opportunities or to register as a Table Host, please contact Suzy Rudolph at (614) 457-6003 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
A special thank you to our Presenting Sponsor, Navidea Biopharmaceuticals, Inc.
With as many as 14 million Americans expected to have Alzheimer's disease by 2050, the dementia research field moves to provide earlier evaluation and treatment of cognitive impairment. It is, therefore, increasingly important to have diagnostic agents that can accurately detect the underlying cause of dementia. Navidea's ultimate goal is to provide improved diagnostic tools that possess outstanding performance characteristics to aid physicians in the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of neurodegenerative dementia.
