The month of June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month. A time for raising awareness about Alzheimer’s and brain health. Each June, the Alzheimer’s Association leads the nation’s efforts to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s. On June 21, the day of the summer solstice, people from across the world recognized “The Longest Day,” an effort to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s. The month of June is a prime opportunity to spread the word about and discuss Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Join IA2 , the Alzheimer’s Association, and many others in promoting Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month.
During the month of June, the IA2 team was very busy. The IA2 team was able to travel again this month for many exciting events to learn and share more about brain health and other important issues for native elders, such as elder justice. IA2 attended the STAGES Convening, the Title VI Cluster Training, and team members traveled to Albuquerque to participate in a resource informational video shoot. Along with travel, our team has been busy working on various other activities.
