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 initiatives. 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.
The window for membership applications has closed. Please check back on our website in July 2016 for more information. Thank you for your interest in the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Illinois Chapter Junior Board!
