Cancelled 26th Annual Alzheimer Day

Thursday, May 14, 2020

We are Canceling the 26th Annual Alzheimer Day scheduled for May 14, 2020.

We have been monitoring the situation with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) closely. We are following guidance from the CDC as of March 15, 2020 that gatherings of 50 people or more be cancelled or postponed for the next 8 weeks. These developing uncertainties make it difficult for us to have confidence to conduct our annual Alzheimer Day as planned.

Stay tuned for details for the 2021 Annual Alzheimer Day, we remain excited about holding this educational event annually and apologize for inconveniences this unexpected situation may cause.
