Charity of the Month - Alzheimer's Research & Prevention Foundation
EatSmart fans will continue to select a Charity of the Month in 2016. Fans will submit short stories about the charity’s mission and why it’s meaningful to them. We began our Charity of the Month donations in 2011. We’ve selected the Alzheimer's Research & Prevention Foundation as our charity of the month for November. Alzheimer's Research & Prevention Foundation Mission Statement: The mission of the Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation is to prevent Alzheimer’s disease by funding research studies and providing educational outreach and memory screenings. For 20 years, the ARPF has been on the leading edge by researching, advocating, and educating about a holistic or integrative approach to preventing memory loss and Alzheimer’s. We do this by:
- Researching innovative and breakthrough modalities in the holistic or integrative medical approach to the prevention of this disease.
- Educating healthcare professionals, patients, and their families as well as the public on the known aspects of Alzheimer’s disease, with particular emphasis on the prevention and treatment of early stage memory loss. We believe in your fundamental right to be informed about all the medically proven modalities that are available to you to maximize your brain function now and hopefully reduce your risk of dementia later. We also provide Free Memory Screenings to increase awareness and testing.
- Facilitating communication among health care professionals to share the results of our research, and between Alzheimer’s organizations and the public to increase awareness of the disease and inform them about the available resources in our greater communities.
