The month of November was designated as Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month in 1983  by then, President Ronald Reagan.

In 1983, fewer than 2 million Americans had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.  The number of people currently diagnosed and living with the disease has skyrocketed to over 5 million.

Show your commitment to a world without Alzheimer’s by participating in Go Purple during the month of November.
