Spanish Language Community Forums
Building on the success of the Alzheimer’s Association Community Forums held in the spring, we are holding two more in September, this time en Español. The forums provide an opportunity for New Yorkers to learn more about Alzheimer’s, dementia and memory loss, as well as give attendees a place to discuss how the New York City Chapter can better serve the community. Please register in advance by calling our 24/7 helpline, 800-272-3900.
