The Junior Board of the Alzheimer's Association, Greater Illinois Chapter, was founded in 2011 to raise awareness of Alzheimer's and related dementias, and to take action through fundraising events, support programs, education and advocacy initatives. Alzheimer's has touched each one of these civic-minded young professionals in some way, and all are united by a desire to see an end to the disease.
