The Greater Richmond Chapter bestowed Alzheimer's Advocate Awards at our 6th Annual Alzheimer's Advocate Recognition Reception on November 7, 2012 in celebration of Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month. The recognition took place at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Those singled out included: Senator Stephen H. Martin, Dr. Patricia Slattum, and Christy and Donald Talbott.
Senator Stephen H. Martin, who represents Virginia's 11th Senate District, was honored for his efforts to ensure the continuation of the Alzheimer's and Related Disorders Commission. Senator Martin has always been a principled fighter for the most vulnerable Virginians, lending his voice to their cause. The year 2012 was no exception. When the Alzheimer's and Related Disorders Commission was threatened with elimination, Senator Martin stepped forward and ensured that people with dementia and their families will continue to have input into the policies that affect them.
Dr. Patricia Slattum, Associate Professor, VCU School of Pharmacy, was honored for her service to the Alzheimer's Association and the Alzheimer's and Related Disorders Commission, and her dedication to those with dementia diseases. Dr. Slattum has particular interest in Alzheimer's and dementia and presently serves as chair of the Commonwealth's Alzheimer's and Related Disorders Commission. She served for six years on the Board of Directors of the Chapter and during her tenure served as Chair of the Chapter's Program Committee. She has presented numerous presentations at a variety of educational venues on medication for those with cognitive impairments. In addition, she has provided consultations for families who are struggling with medication issues with family members.
Donald and Christy Talbott of Gloucester were recognized for their work on behalf of the Alzheimer's Association and in particular their work which has been instrumental in the process and growth of the Gloucester Walk to End Alzheimer's over the last two years.
Don was diagnosed with younger onset Alzheimer's at age 41. He and Christy serve on the Middle Peninsula/Northern Neck Advisory Council and Don has served as the Honorary Chairman for the Walk to End Alzheimer's in 2011 and 2012. He is a leader in the support group for people with dementia and is highly respected and loved by the other members of the group. Don also assists in the Memories in the Making program at adult day care in Gloucester. Don's ideas and enthusiasm are contagious.
Christy has been an advocate and a dedicated volunteer for the Gloucester Walk since 2005. Even when she couldn't share her husband's diagnosis with others, she pursued her Alzheimer's education and began working for the cure. She is an active member of support groups, education programs and third party fundraisers. Christy cares for many in her community and helps them find the resources and support that they need.
