Memory Sunday New England is a collaboration between faith communities and health/community organizations focused on raising awareness about memory loss, aging and Alzheimer’s Disease in the African-American/Black community.
The year-long collaboration culminates in a June event, the second Sunday, which began with a single participating church in 2018! The Age Strong Commission can provide assistance, information and resources to any faith based organization that is interested in hosting a Memory Sunday event of their own.
