Over 180,000 North Carolina residents are currently living with Alzheimer's diseases. Research is still evolving, but evidence is strong that people can reduce their risk of cognitive decline by making key lifestyle changes, including participating in regular physical activity, staying socially engaged, and maintaining good heart health.

The job of the Healthy Aging Community Educator is to present Healthy Living for Your Brain and Body: Tips from the Latest Research; the training materials and program is already created from the Association.

Potential volunteers could have a background in nutrition, fitness, gerontology, or just a passion for healthy living/aging well. This is a great program that can be done in collaboration with many organizations and services, like paired with a cooking demo, gardening or canning class, wellness retreat, etc.

Presenters are expected to:

  • Provide a minimum of 6 presentations through staff collaboration and/or by scheduling your own presentations (faith community, nonprofit organizations, social services, guest speakers, etc)
  • Refer attendees to the resources and programs of the Alzheimer’s Association as appropriate
  • Arrive on time and have reliable transportation
  • Successfully complete online training

This is also a great opportunity for college/graduate school students looking for experience.
