Go Purple for Alzheimer's Awareness!

The prevalence, incidence and cumulative risk of Alzheimer's disease are disproportionately high in the African-American and Hispanic population according to the Alzheimer's Association (para leer en Espanol).

To increase awareness of this disease and the importance of early detection, you and your entire church family are invited to participate in the Alzheimer’s Association's next Purple Sunday. Purple Sunday started in Westchester County and focused on outreach African-American and Hispanic congregations. It has since expanded to all the Hudson Valley Chapter's coverage area, including Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan and Ulster counties.
