LANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA, June 9, 2022 – The Greater Pennsylvania Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association is holding a bilingual community discussion on the impact of Alzheimer’s and other dementia on the Hispanic community and ways to address the public health crisis on Thursday, June 9, 2022, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Plaza San Juan Bautista in Lancaster.

“We are looking forward to this Event and addressing how Alzheimer’s and other dementia impacts the Hispanic community and ways we can address it together,” said Jessica Hill, Senior Program Manager for the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Pennsylvania Chapter. “We are fortunate to have Community Partners involved to share information about community resources and the importance of early detection.”

Leaders such as Heather Snyder, Ph.D., Vice President of Medical and Scientific Relations for the Alzheimer’s Association, Robert Torres, PA Secretary of Aging, Norman Bristol Colon, Chief Diversity Officer for the PA Department of Community and Economic Development, and others will speak about the impact of the disease and community resources.
