In 1979, Jerome H. Stone and representatives from several family support groups met with the National Institute on Aging to explore the value of a national, independent, nonprofit organization to complement federal efforts surrounding Alzheimer's disease. That meeting resulted in the April 10, 1980, formation of the Alzheimer's Association with Mr. Stone as founding president.
Today, the Association reaches millions of people affected by Alzheimer's across the globe through our national office and chapters in communities nationwide. We are the world's leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research.
Together, we can change the future of Alzheimer's. Donate today.
