Part Two of a Special Two Part “Conversations about Change”

Conversations about Change is a series of conversations with our partners in the community, raising awareness about how we can change the lives of people affected by dementia for the better—together.

Our sixth episode is part two of a two part series with Penn Memory Center. This series commemorates Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month. This interview is also just one of many ways in which we are celebrating our 10th year. To see more about our 10th year celebrations: click here.
