As we come to an end to Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month — a global initiative to raise awareness, encourage action and create dialogue about Alzheimer's and other dementias — we are so thankful for the action NARFE and its members have taken to show their support. We welcome you to keep the momentum going this summer! There's still time to join the NARFE Walk to End Alzheimer's® team and go purple — the color of Alzheimer's. We are so grateful to have partners who share our vision of a world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia.
