My Connection, My Cause: Allie Jardin on what drives her to fight Alzheimer’s

Allie Jardin is an associate program director for the Alzheimer’s Association, Central New York Chapter. While she was in graduate school working on her master’s of social work, Allie chose to do a year-long internship with the Chapter because she was personally affected by the disease. Here, Allie writes about why she fights Alzheimer’s as part of our My Connection, My Cause series.
