June is Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month, a time dedicated to raising awareness about Alzheimer's disease and promoting brain health. We invite you to join us in our mission to make a difference in the lives of those affected by this devastating disease.
Alzheimer's disease is a growing epidemic, affecting millions of individuals and their families worldwide. It robs people of their memories, their independence, and their ability to perform daily tasks. During this crucial month, we aim to shed light on the impact of Alzheimer's and emphasize the urgent need for support and research.
Together, we can make a difference. We are the largest voice for neurological state-funded research in Texas and through the commitment of our leadership and volunteers, our efforts have resulted in almost $70,000,000 in state funding available to 10 Texas medical schools. Join us in raising awareness and support for Alzheimer's and brain health. https://www.txalz.org/

As we enhance our mission with messaging related to brain health, we share with you the following message from Dr. Sandi Bond Chapman. Sandi was our keynote speaker at the biennial 2022 Hidden Heros Luncheon. Her inspirational and informative lecture was received with enthusiasm by all in attendance as we honored DK Reynolds as your Community Caregiver of the year. Our audience contacts us regularly for info on Dr. Sandi, her programs, and her message. Since we believe, as do many, what is good for the heart is good for the head, we share the following important message from Dr. Sandi.
"Dear Friends at Alzheimer's Texas,
Boost your brain power by letting your brain guide your heart to show more acts of compassion. Acts of compassion will not only strengthen your brain’s neural connections, but you will also elevate your neuropharmacy with a micro-dose of norepinephrine. And the person to whom you show compassion – will also get a brain boost.
Without brain health – we do not have health. Compassion - What a great way to get smarter and strengthen social connectedness. We all need more love right now.
If you are curious, join the BrainHealth Text Challenge for 5 days: Starts Monday, Feb. 20 and you will get mini-tips on how to become brain healthier. Each morning, our BrainHealth team will text you a habit to try out, the science behind it, and how it can help improve brain health. Just text BRAIN to 888-844-8991 right this very moment so you don’t forget.
Keep your brain in tip-top shape. You can join virtually or in person for our first annual BrainHealth Week, February 20-24, 2023! This five-day interactive experience empowers people of all ages and circumstances to adopt brain-healthy habits as a regular part of their daily wellness routine. Here are more ways to participate:
- On-site and live-streamed events with a wide variety of speakers and topics related to brain health in the real world- https://centerforbrainhealth.org/brainhealth-week-2023/week-overview
