Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month

Join the movement to end Alzheimer’s during Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month
June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month, and the Alzheimer’s Association® needs you to get involved and raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Everyone who has a brain is at risk to develop Alzheimer’s, a disease that is often misunderstood. Did you know:
• Alzheimer’s is fatal. It kills more than breast and prostate cancer combined.
• Alzheimer’s is not normal aging. It’s a progressive brain disease without any cure.
• Alzheimer’s is more than memory loss. It appears through a variety of signs and symptoms.

During the month of June, the Alzheimer’s Association asks you to learn more about Alzheimer’s, share your story and take action.

 

Indianapolis Power and Light Goes Purple!
For Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month, Indianapolis Power and Light will feature a purple window display on the 10-story headquarters building on Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis on June 19-20 and June 22-23 as part of their IPL Lights program. Share photos of the display with hashtags #IPLlights and #ENDALZ.
