‘Walk to Remember’ puts focus on Alzheimer’s disease

By
June 2, 2011 |

“A Walk to Remember,” an event designed to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease, will take place rain or shine from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at St. John’s Retirement Village, 135 Woodland Ave. in Woodland.

Representatives of the Alzheimer’s Association’s Northern California Chapter will kick off the event at 9 a.m. by sharing the latest research information. Following their presentation, Woodland resident Diova Gray will talk about her experience of being a family member of someone with Alzheimer’s disease. At 11 a.m., Dr. Jeffrey Yee, clinical director of Stollwood Convalescent Hospital, will talk about “Things Learned in a Doctor’s Visit.”

All speakers and registration will be in the chapel.

If it is raining, attendees won’t walk, but are still invited to participate in memory screenings, health checks provided by Woodland Healthcare, brain-stimulating food tastings and brain games.

American Medical Response will have an ambulance open for tours and Precision Chaos and the Woodland Dog Training Group will do an agility exhibition outside on the grass near Woodland Memorial Hospital.

To register, call (530) 662-1290 or register the day of the event. The fee is $20 per person and includes a “Walk to Remember” T-shirt.
