New in 2013 - The Junior Committee

A new committee is being formed in the Charlottesville area to support and be advocates for the Alzheimer’s Association Central and Western Virginia Chapter. Spurred by the interest and hard work of fourth-year University of Virginia student Lisette Carbajal, the Junior Committee is now recruiting members in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s.

"This committee offers a variety of opportunities to get involved including monthly meetings, fundraising events, ways to volunteer with the Chapter and a means to speak out in support of research and caregiver support,” said Carbajal. “Leadership positions are available, but of course we are looking for people who just want to be members of the committee too.”

The Committee held an organizational meeting in late February.
