Mission Statement

The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. Our mission: To eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Our vision, A world without Alzheimer's disease.

Description

We provide programs and support services for patients, families, caregivers, and others in the San Francisco Bay Area affected by Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. Outside the federal government, the Alzheimer's Association is the largest research funder in the country and offers advocacy opportunities to make public policy change.

At the Alzheimer's Association, diversity and inclusion are vital to our mission. The Association leads strategic initiatives to support diversity and a culture of inclusivity. These strategic initiatives also strengthen outreach to all populations, providing communities with resources and support to address the Alzheimer’s crisis. By partnering with organizations locally and nationally to advance diversity and inclusion, the Association can broaden its reach in all communities.

I have an undergraduate in Human Biology with my final composition written about Alzheimer's disease advancements (2013). I also worked briefly at the Buck Institute for Aging with projects exclusively to studying Alzheimer's in transgenic mice and their intracellular components. I am very comfortable with the science and mechanism of Alzheimer's and I also worked at numerous hospitals with geriatric patients and am familiar with Alzheimer patient's behaviors and progressions. I would really like to be part of this community.

A very accommodating environment that has allowed me to help out a good cause and give me things to do which I am interested in.

This is my second year volunteering for the Alzheimer's Association's "Blondes vs. Brunettes Powderpuff Football Fundraiser." As a volunteer driven event, we get to be extremely hands on and are very involved in the behind the scenes work. Our Association contact, Lacey, does a great job of balancing when to sit back and when to jump in and help us. She's always available when we need her and has a lot of great resources to help make our jobs easier. Getting to work with a young group of professionals who are all so passionate and driven for this cause has been extremely rewarding!
