During the winter months, in-person programming will be limited due to weather conditions. However, the Alzheimer's Association will continue to offer educational webinars from the comfort of your home. These virtual programs provide high-quality disease and dementia education for those directly affected by the disease. They are free of charge and include topics such as signs of Alzheimer's disease, diagnosis, communication, living with Alzheimer's and caregiving techniques.

Each webinar is held live with time for Q&A. Please note that all webinars are listed in Eastern Standard Time (EST).
