Alzheimer’s Association-Mid South Chapter

The Alzheimer’s Association is a global organization working to advance care, support and research across the world. From face-to-face support offered locally throughout the Tri-Cities to online education programs and promising international research initiatives, donations we receive make a difference in the lives of millions affected by Alzheimer’s today and those who face the disease tomorrow. The Alzheimer’s Association invests in cutting-edge projects that hold the most potential to help people today and change the trajectory of this devastating disease. Since 1982, we have awarded $405 million to over 2,600 scientific proposals. The Association is the leading voice for Alzheimer’s disease advocacy, fighting for critical Alzheimer’s research, prevention and care initiatives at the state and federal level. Over 77% of our total annual expenses going to care, support, research, awareness and advocacy activities. In partnership with the Alzheimer’s Impact Movement, the Association’s advocacy arm, we have accelerated the passage of landmark legislation such as the National Alzheimer’s Project Act, which mandated the creation of a national plan to fight Alzheimer’s disease. The plan addresses the rapidly escalating Alzheimer’s crisis and coordinates efforts. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer’s.
