As many as 5.3 million people in the United States are living with Alzheimer's.
Every 70 seconds, someone develops Alzheimer's.
Alzheimer's is the sixth-leading cause of death.
The Junior Committee of the Alzheimer's Association, NYC Chapter is dedicated to raising awareness of Alzheimer's and related dementias to individuals in their 20s and 30s through events, support and education to further the efforts of the NYC Chapter. We are a diverse group of civic-minded young professionals who have all been touched by Alzheimer’s in some way. Some have lost a loved one, some have watched a friend suffer, and some have been caregivers – but all are united by a desire to see an end to Alzheimer’s disease.
