Media Relations Volunteers act as the point of contact for local media in their neighborhood, and ask those outlets to tell stories about our work or share information related to our mission and advocacy efforts. Volunteers monitor local news outlets in order to understand how Alzheimer's Association messages might fit in. They then approach their assigned outlets and reporters with information and ideas, under the direction of the chapter communications director and with input from the advocacy team.
