The Young Professionals for Alzheimer's Awareness (YPAA) conducts social events, with an emphasis on increasing awareness and promoting advocacy in order to create an excitement from participants to become more involved in this group and/or the Alzheimer’s Association.

The group works to increase awareness of Alzheimer’s disease, the resources available to caregivers and people living with dementia through the Alzheimer’s Association, and advocacy.
