Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

June is Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month - a time to shine a purple light for the millions people living with Alzheimer's. We need your help by mobilizing friends, families, neighbors, co-workers and customers to help bring an end to Alzheimer's disease.

Go purple with a purpose! Thousands of Americans will turn their Facebook profile purple with an “END ALZ” icon. Wear purple to work and encourage your coworkers to have an Alzheimer’s awareness day. The Alzheimer’s Association Greater Indiana Chapter can offer yard signs, posters and other materials to help you go purple and support the Walk to End Alzheimer’s® in your area.  Please consider hanging these posters in your workplace. We can also provide you with an article for your company eNews.

Take the lead and learn how your business can support Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month. Support, educate, empower and declare through some of these partnership opportunities.

Whether it's by sharing a diagnosis — or taking action to honor a family member — brave individuals are overcoming stigma & facing Alzheimer's head on. Call 800.272.3900 or email Cathy Boyer at for more ideas on how you and your loved ones can fight stigma and make this month count. The time is now to commit to going purple during Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month. The End of Alzheimer's Starts with YOU.
