Alzheimer's Association Logo

Alzheimer's Association Community Representatives are community engagers that raise awareness of Alzheimer's Association programs, provide basic disease information, and link consumers to Alzheimer’s Association services. Community Representatives serve as liaisons between the Alzheimer's Association and local groups such as neighborhoods, rural counties, business and civic organizations or faith communities. Community Representatives represent the Alzheimer’s Association by sharing information about Alzheimer’s disease, free resources offered through the Alzheimer’s Association, and the many ways to join our cause at local community and education events.
