Memory Sabbath & Memory Sunday6/12/20216/13/2021All Day
Memory Sunday is an annual event typically scheduled on the second Sunday in June.
On Memory Sunday, faith communities 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.
