The 10th Annual Pythias A. and Virginia I. Jones African-American Community Forum
on Memory Loss

Courtesy of our sponsors listed below, this free event will provide information about memory loss, support caregivers, share new research and show how to get involved in helping conquering Alzheimer's and other dementias. This forum attracts more than 425 family members of people with dementia (including teens and adult children), health professionals and care professions. It is named in honor of the parents of State Senator Verna L. Jones-Rodwell, Ernestine Jones Jolivet, Alvin A. Jones, Pythias D. Jones, MD and the late Gilda Jones-Garrett, who were affected by dementia.
