Alzheimer's Association Community Educators are volunteer public speakers who help raise awareness, provide education and expand the reach of the Association's programs in the community. Community Educators deliver Alzheimer's Association Core Curriculum using prepared training materials on topics related to Azlheimer's disease and other dementias as well as information for individuals and families impacted by the disease.
Right now, millions of Americans fact the devastation of dementia. It is robbing us of our families, our futures and our finances. Educating local communities is one way we increase awareness and give families tools for decreasing risk, recognizing the signs, understanding dementia and managing care.
We provide extensive online and in-person training
We ask for a 1 year commitment and a minimum of 8-12 presentations per year (most presentations are 1 hour long).
