Memory Sunday6/14/2020All Day
Memory Sunday is an annual event typically scheduled on the second Sunday in June. On Memory Sunday, participating congregations serving African Americans provide education on Alzheimer’s: prevention, treatment, research studies, and caregiving. Memory Sunday is an initiative of the National Brain Health Center for African Americans, founded by The Balm In Gilead, which provides support to faith communities and other institutions that work to eliminate health disparities. The National Brain Health Center for African Americans offers a Memory Sunday Toolkit and other resources for African American congregations on their website.
Planning is now underway for Memory Sunday 2020 in Seattle-King County. Check back for more information this spring.
