The health and safety of our constituents, volunteers and staff remain our driver as we address the COVID-19 outbreak and as we continue to pursue our mission, today and in the longer term.
Based on the guidance from local public health agencies and New York State, the staff in Central New York will be working remotely. We are prepared with technological and other support for our staff to successfully operate in support of our mission. Alzheimer’s Association operations will continue, and we will re-evaluate these measures on an ongoing basis and resume in person engagements as soon as we are able, based on public health guidelines.
Meetings, events and participation both in internal and external activities will be conducted online or by phone whenever possible. Please check below for details on meetings and events.
