Volunteers are the life and breath of the Alzheimer's Association Greater Iowa Chapter. As we continue to grow so does the importance of the volunteer. The Association provides an opportunity for volunteers to use current skills and also to develop new ones. We invite you to join us in our journey towards a cure for Alzheimer's disease.
