The Alzheimer's Association and the NFL Alumni Association (NFLA) announced a new partnership today aimed at raising concern and awareness of Alzheimer's disease and all other dementia, while also providing care and support resources for individuals and families impacted by dementia. To kick off the partnership, they conducted a one-hour virtual town hall, "Team Up to End Alzheimer's – A Discussion on Brain Health and the Black Community" on August 31 at 6:30 p.m. Pacific time. The discussion, featuring Dr. Carl V. Hill of the Alzheimer's Association, representatives from the NFL Alumni, and Dean Linda Burton of Berkeley Social Welfare, examined brain health in the Black community. Dr. Robert W. Turner II, Assistant Professor in the Department of Clinical Research and Leadership at the George Washington University and a former professional football player, moderated the discussion.
