Our Task This Week

Photo by Jeff Norris
I had a great time this past Saturday being a panelist for "Taking on Alzheimer's: A National Conversation at Home" which was put on by the Daughters Club of the Alzheimer's Association Cleveland Chapter.  I will be writing much more about the wonderful event later.

However, I wanted to let you know that Angela Geiger, one of the editors of The Shriver Report and our moderator for the discussion, gave us all a task. A task that I want to pass on to you all as well.

Ms. Geiger asked us all to talk to five people this week about Alzheimer's disease. Five people who we have never talked with about Alzheimer's before. 

The best way to increase awareness and get the nation to respond to the Alzheimer's crisis is for all of us to talk about it.

So, let's all find five people this week and spread the message that together, we can end Alzheimer's disease.

Post in the comment section if you were able to talk to five people, then we can really show this task being put into action!

  1. I talked about Alzheimer's Disease in my sermon today at a church I have not preached at before. So that was a big group of people who I have never talked to before about Alzheimer's

    Dad said at his retreat he talked about Alzheimer's as well, and most of these people were new to him.

    I think that was about 100 people we spoke to between the two of us.

    Together, we can spread the word!
