Description

Building Stronger Communities Presents Across the Lifespan: Alzheimer’s – A community health crisis

Tulsa, OK – Building Stronger Communities will present Across the lifespan: Alzheimer’s – A community health crisis, at the Tulsa Central Library, Pocahontas Room on April 27th at 3:00 pm (doors 2:30 pm), and featuring representatives from: the Alzheimer’s Association – Cathy Sullins, Area Agency on Aging – Clark Miller, Incog – Rich Brierre, and State Legislator – Rep. Melissa Provenzano.

We are proud to bring Across the Lifespan: Alzheimer’s to Tulsa as the first in a series of citizen initiatives promoting community engagement.

Across the Lifespan: Alzheimer’s seeks to increase awareness of the multifaceted and broad-spectrum impact of Alzheimer’s and other dementias on the community.

An estimated 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s with a projected 133% increase to 14 million by 2050. As the 6th leading cause of death, it is the most expensive long term (4-20 years) disease. Everyone will be affected – as patient, family member, caregiver, work force, or community member. Classified as a public health crisis – we need to be proactive.

What will be our community response? How can we support those affected by this debilitating, financially devastating disease? What do we need to know? How are we going to meet the crisis? What tools do we, as citizens, have to engage our community in a positive, prepared response?

Building Stronger Communities is a citizen-initiated series on issues identified as critical to our wellbeing.
