Alzheimer's Awareness Month

June is Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month


The purpose is to raise awareness among the general public, as well as among policymakers, public authorities, industry representatives, scientists, and health professionals.

Awareness and recognition are key to increasing the recognition, diagnosis, understanding, and management of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), a neurodegenerative disorder thought to affect 6.2 million U.S. residents age 65 and older. By 2050, that figure is expected to more than double to 12.7 million.


The Alzheimer’s Association is asking people to wear purple, post photos on social media, talk to your friends, family and communities about Alzheimer’s to raise awareness for the disease.
