African American History Month

February is African American History Month! From the beautiful mind of poet Zora Neale Hurston to the musical creativity of musician Miles Davis, there is an abundance to celebrate! That's why we want to raise awareness this month in particular.

Did you know that African Americans are at a greater risk for Alzheimer's disease? As a matter of fact, African Americans are two times more likely to develop late-onset Alzheimer's and are less likely to have a diagnosis of their condition. So, what have we done to work against this earth-shattering trend?

When we know the facts, we are better able to prevent this epidemic from spreading any further. Celebrate African American History Month by advocating for someone you love today!
