AAHP and Black Churches Collaborate for Senior Memory Health

AAHP Aging subcommittee post will begin hosting monthly events to discuss memory health issues in collaboration with local Black Churches. These activities will culminate in an Alzheimer’s event, “Memory Sunday,” which will take place on the 2nd Sunday in June.

Memory Sunday is based on guidelines established by The Balm in Gilead’s Brain Health Center for African Americans (BHCAA), a respected organization dedicated to improving the health and wellness of Black communities. BHCAA incorporates the influence of African American churches to deliver educational information about ways to reduce the risk of developing dementia and provide support to people living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers.

For more information: contact Ama Lee, Aging Ambassador for the AAHP Aging Subcommittee, at or 240-777-1833.
