Diversity and Inclusion Statement

Alzheimer's disease does not discriminate. It affects people of all faiths, backgrounds, ethnicities and socio-economic status.

At the Alzheimer's Association, diversity is imperative and integral to our mission. It is vital to what we do, and it is a promise we make to those we serve. Our team of dedicated professionals understands that valuing diversity and inclusion is critical to the success of our mission.

We here at the Arkansas Chapter strive to continue to cultivate our relationships with diverse communities by sharing our time, talent, resources and by exchanging ideas. We're always here to help. Only by coming together can we hope to create a world without Alzheimer's.

In addition, this new program, called SAGECare, recognizes organizations once they have received this training. Qualifying organizations such as the Association receive a SAGECare credential (bronze, silver, gold or platinum) based on the type of training received and the percentage of staff trained at each chapter.
