The Alzheimer’s Association Greater East Ohio Area Chapter provides free support and resources to individuals living with memory loss, and their caregivers. Our service area covers seventeen counties. We raise funds to provide these services and to advance global research on dementia. The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research. The disease currently affects more than five million American adults and is the 6th leading cause of death in the country. It is the only cause of death among the top 10 in the US that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed down. Help plan our Muskingum County Walk to End Alzheimer's through team recruitment, team engagement, marketing or outreach efforts.
