Alzheimer's Research and Education

With Alzheimer’s disease affecting 1 in 3 seniors, LCS is committed to supporting efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. As a Walk to End Alzheimer’s® National Team, LCS forms teams and raises funds for Walks across the country. The funds raised advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. Team donations play an important role in improving the lives of people living with Alzheimer’s, their families and caregivers.

Our 2017 Alzheimer’s Campaign focused on three important areas: engagement, education, and financial support of the fight against Alzheimer’s. Each of these areas are critically important and aligned with global efforts to 1) eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through research, 2) provide care and support for those affected by Alzheimer’s, and 3) reduce the future risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

The Speaker Series hosted in June offered LCS employees and the general public an opportunity to learn more about Alzheimer’s disease. Speaker topics  included the signs of Alzheimer’s, promising disease research, caregiver challenges, and caregiving tips and methods. Presenters ranged from James Hendrix Ph.D. sharing the latest Alzheimer’s research, to acclaimed author Jolene Brackey sharing her vision to look beyond the challenges of the disease and create moments of joy.

The 2018 Speaker Series line-up will be announced soon.
