Sunday June 13th is a national observance known as Memory Sunday, when African American faith leaders use the power of the pulpit to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease in the Black community.

The Center will recognize June 13th as Memory Sunday by offering expertise, workshops and other forms of outreach to support churches in sharing information on Alzheimer’s risk factors and prevention to African Americans of all ages.
