Alzheimer's affects Hispanics/Latinos, African-Americans and women in disproportionately high numbers. Have you been affected? Make sure you attend this hearing.

On June 2nd of this year, the Alzheimer's Task Force, appointed by the governor and the House and Senate leadership began its work to address the need for a state plan.

On Thursday, October 13th from 11:00 to 2:00 PM the Task Force will be holding its last of 6 statewide hearings.

One of the main points of discussion for this meeting is the impact of these diseases on the diverse communities of Utah.  It is important to the task force to hear from representatives of Utah’s communities of color, many of which are disproportionately impacted by this disease. 

This hearing offers a unique opportunity for community leaders and others to come and learn about the disease and the recommendations the Task Force is reviewing that will be presented to the Governor and state legislature to address this issue in Utah.

Attend and share your story or learn about the impact this disease is having on our community.
