Alzheimer's Association Blondes vs. Brunettes
Blondes vs. Brunettes is a volunteer-driven event that raises awareness and funds for the Alzheimer’s Association®. Two teams of women – divided to reflect the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes – compete in a flag football game to help end Alzheimer’s. The participants also recruit coaches, announcers and other volunteers to build an atmosphere of fierce, friendly competition. Leading up to game day, the two teams participate in a series of events to socialize and increase awareness for Alzheimer’s disease.
Game Day: May 5th (kick off at noon)
Otto Breitenbach Stadium
Middleton High School
2100 Bristol Street, Middleton, WI 53562

2013 Wisconsin Network Conference on Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias
One of the largest conferences in the United States dedicated to Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
Special Lecture Series
Like every organ in the body, the brain changes with age. For some people, the changes are relatively benign, and do not affect their lifestyles in significant ways. For others, brain aging brings with it serious memory and thinking problems, broadly referred to as “dementias.” Other brain changes can cause motor difficulties, such as those seen in Parkinson disease. Yet, cognitive decline in aging is not inevitable, and science has shown that there are steps we can take to keep our brain fit.
Starting March 13th - join us for Brain Health for the 21st Century a three-part lecture series by Thomas Fritsch, Ph.D. Director, Parkinson Research Institute of Milwaukee.
March 13th, 2013—10:00 to 11:30am
The “Dementias”: What are They?
The dementias are a class of diseases that affect memory, thinking, and physical function. Dr. Fritsch will cover the three most common dementias—Alzheimer disease, Lewy Body dementia, and Vascular dementia, emphasizing and their impacts on the person and family, as well as treatment approaches.
April 10th—10:00 to 11:30am
Parkinson Disease: A Primer
Parkinson disease is a movement disorder…but it also affects cognition, behaviors, and so-called “vegetative functions.” Learn about the lesser known aspects of Parkinson disease in this lecture which may explain surprising signs and symptoms of the disease.
May 8th—10:00 to 11:30am
“Healthy” Cognitive Aging
Cognitive decline is believed by most to be an inevitable part of aging. This is patently false. There are substantial differences in the paths of cognitive aging—and there are even steps we can take to optimize brain function as we age.
