June 21st is The Longest Day, symbolizing the 50 million people worldwide who live with Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. Maria Parham invites you to wear your best purple and share how you’re helping to end Alzheimer’s. Visit www.alz.org to find out how you can help in the fight by participating in The Longest Day.

Maria Parham Health CEO Bert Beard supports this cause, commenting, “It’s an increasingly important health issue as we continue to care for an aging population. Understanding the disease, signs and symptoms are important on the path to finding a cure, and those individuals and families touched by Alzheimer’s deserve a greater collective awareness.”

Show your true Purple and then promote your efforts via your social media channels using #EndAlz and #TheLongestDay. Send your Go Purple photos to donna.young@lpnt.net, and Maria Parham Health will cross-promote your efforts to #ENDALZ through their social media channels. Maria Parham Health is encouraging everyone to put our Purple to Work to End Alzheimer’s.
