In observation of national Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month, the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) is promoting early detection and intervention for those concerned about memory loss by sponsoring National Memory Screening Day on Tuesday, November 15, 2011.
National Memory Screening Day provides free, confidential memory screenings to individuals concerned about memory loss with the objective of early detection and intervention. The event encourages Americans to participate by offering screenings at no charge and in convenient locations in communities across the nation. National Memory Screening Day also provides a valuable opportunity to learn more about healthy lifestyle choices for successful aging.
