The health and safety of our constituents, volunteers and staff remains our driver as we address the COVID-19 outbreak and as we continue to pursue our mission, today and in the longer term.

Meetings, events and participation both in internal and external activities will be conducted online or by phone whenever possible. Please check www.alz.org/sandiego or https://www.communityresourcefinder.org/ for details on meetings and events.
