Alzheimer's Texas is aware of the restrictions that are placed due to COVID-19. It has created much uncertainty in our organization as well as many others. Out of an abundance of concern for everyone's safety and to avoid any risk of infection related to the COVID-19 virus, the Alzheimer's Symposium is cancelling the face-to-face portion of its scheduled symposium and moving to a published proceeding within a virtual environment.
The details of the change to the symposium are being worked out at this time. The first result of this change is that the Symposium is proceeding with a virtual platform on September 25, 2020 from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. Details on this will be forthcoming.
We need your help to give ALZ the boot! Alzheimer's Texas Walks are the only Alzheimer's walk fundraisers where 100% of the funds you raise stays in Texas. Join us to raise awareness about Alzheimer's and related disorders, support families currently facing the disease, honor those we have lost.
Form a team, and track your steps donating a $1 a mile, with proceeds going to Alzheimer's Texas to help support our caregiver educational programs.
This year our Williamson County Walk will be virtual on Saturday, Sept. 19th at 8:30 a.m.
And we have our Central Texas Regional Caregiver Walk on Saturday, October 10th at 8:30 a.m.
Come walk with us virtually and post your steps, your miles, your story on our social media pages as we rally together to show support to those with Alzheimer's, their family members, and the caregivers in their lives!

This class is intended for anyone wanting to learn about Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. Disease information, diagnosis and treatment, risk and prevention and coping are some of the topics shared. It is a great class to take prior to attending a caregiver support group and provides a good base of disease knowledge.
