Memory Sunday 2020


MADRC leads Memory Sunday New England, a faith-based collaboration made up of leaders at the local, city and state levels focused on raising awareness about memory loss, aging and Alzheimer’s Disease in the African-American community. The year-long collaboration culminates in a June event, the second Sunday, that has grown from a single participating church in 2018 to 14 in 2019.
