I firmly believe in the power of community as a support through the Alzheimer's journey. In addition to staying on top of the latest in research, treatment and trends, my privilege is to facilitate a place here for the exchange of ideas, encouragement, and support. I am passionate about advocating for, and working with, those with Alzheimer's and their loved ones.
