MADRC leads Memory Sunday New England – 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, that has grown from a single participating church in 2018 to 14 in 2019.
