Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month
June 1 – June 30 CDT
Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, observed in June and sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association, is a time to shine a purple light for the millions of individuals, family members and caregivers affected by Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month in June is a chance for the Alzheimer’s Association to hold a global conversation about the brain, Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
Today, 5.4 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, including an estimated 200,000 under the age of 65. By 2050, up to 16 million will have the disease.
