The Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter, Celebrates Photography Exhibit Featuring Photos Taken by Members of its Early Stage Social Engagement Program

(New York, NY July 19, 2018)  The Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter, hosted a reception to celebrate the opening of “Connection”. A photography exhibit featuring photos taken by members of the organization’s Early Stage Social Engagement Program. “Connection” highlights photographs taken by ten members of the program which introduces those in the early stage of Alzheimer’s to new and interesting social experiences. The exhibit is the conclusion of an eight-week photography workshop, led by the Josephine Herrick Project, a non-profit organization that provides photography training to underserved communities.

“The Early Stage Social Engagement Program provides valuable opportunities for those with mild Alzheimer’s symptoms to connect with others who have a similar diagnosis,” said Nicole Manza, care consultant for the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter and coordinator of the Early Stage Social Engagement Program. “The photography workshop pushed the participants to get out into the community while learning a new skill that they can take pride in.”

The exhibit is on display at the FedCap Gallery, 210 East 43rd Street, until July 31. The gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
