“I partnered with Alzheimer’s New Jersey Young Professional’s Advisory Council to further my connections, both as a young professional and as the family member of a loved one lost to this horrible disease. My grandmother passed away in 2011.”
– Patrick R.

“I became involved with the Alzheimer’s New Jersey Young Professionals network to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s among younger people and energize them to join our efforts to raise funds to end this terrible disease. Both my mother and grandmother suffered from dementia so I know first hand how devastating brain-related disease can be.”
– Anthony R.
