The Alzheimer’s Association - South Carolina Chapter
The South Carolina Chapter is the result of a 2006 merger of the The Upstate South Carolina Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association and the Palmetto Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.  The new, unified chapter serves the entire state of South Carolina through a network of local offices. 

Our mission
To eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

Our vision
A world without Alzheimer's disease.
