What is a Champion

An Alzheimer’s Champion is anyone who takes action to learn more about the disease or gets involved with the Alzheimer’s Association.  The Alzheimer’s Association has enlisted well-known celebrities for a new public education campaign entitled Champions.  To localize this national campaign, the East Central Iowa Chapter has recruited several prominent community leaders throughout Eastern Iowa to help raise concern and thus spread a greater awareness for the disease.  Our long-term goal is to enlist 16,000 Champions which equals the number of East Central Iowans currently afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease.
