COMMUNITY EDUCATOR (East Bay) - Educate Your Community about Alzheimer's!
23 people are interested
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.
If you enjoy public speaking and teaching, help educate residents of Alameda, Contra Costa, or Solano counties by volunteering as a Community Educator for the Alzheimer’s Association. Using presentations developed by the Association, educate your community about the difference between normal aging, dementia, and Alzheimer's; the warning signs of Alzheimer’s; how to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s; and available programs and services.
Training will be provided. Help bring awareness of dementia and Alzheimer’s and available resources to YOUR community!
(If public speaking isn’t your thing but you’re outgoing and enjoy meeting the public, please check out our COMMUNITY REPRESENTATIVE opportunity on this site and volunteer to staff a table at a health fair or other community event.)
