About

Alzheimer's is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. and one of the most feared diseases among seniors. Yet many communities lack important information about this terrible disease.

Help the Alzheimer's Association spread the word in YOUR community by volunteering as a Community Outreach Team Member. Staff a table at a local health fair or drop off materials to your local community center, healthcare providers, places of worship, and social clubs.

If you enjoy public speaking or teaching others, you may also have the opportunity to educate community members about the difference between normal aging and Alzheimer's, how to reduce one's risk of getting the disease, and the programs and services available to families and individuals coping with Alzheimer's.

The end of Alzheimer's starts with YOU!
