Annual Giving: Alois Society
The Alzheimer's Association, Georgia Chapter Founder's Club has now become the Alois Society. The Alois Society is named after Dr. Alois [AL-oh-iss] Alzheimer, the pioneering neuropathologist whose investigations in 1906 were the first steps towards understanding the disease that now bears his name. Individuals who make annual unrestricted contributons in excess of $1,000 to the Chapter are recognized as Alois Society members, who directly support more than 200,000 Georgians who have Alzheimer's disease as well as their families and caregivers. The purpose of the Alois Society is to encourage annual contributions to help enrich and expand the Chapter's work in keeping with its dedication to provide family support, education, information, advocacy, and research. For more information on becoming an Alois Society member, please contact us or call your local Georgia Chapter office at 770.728.1181.
Dr. Alois Alzheimer practiced medicine at the turn of the 20th century. He encountered a female patient whose symptoms did not fit any known diagnosis. He gave the pseudonym “Auguste D.” In 1905 when this patient died, Dr. Alzheimer performed the autopsy and observed the effect of a devastating disorder to the brain that would later bear his name. One hundred years after Dr. Alzheimer presented his findings to the medical community, the Alzheimer’s Association continues to lead a massive international effort to realize its vision: a world without Alzheimer’s disease.
A contribution of $1000 or more provides you with unique Information, Access, and Recognition as we join forces to eliminate this terrible disease and provide care to those in need.
We invite you through your financial support to join our mission to serve the needs of the Alzheimer’s community in our region.
