This Annual Conference is May 10th.

SAN is excited to announce that a sister organization of ours, the South Sound Regional Advisory Council Alzheimer’s Association, Washington State Chapter will be hosting their annual Alzheimer’s Conference on May 10th. The Advisory Counci is a nonprofit organization consisting of family members, professionals, and companies in the south sound area dedicated to helping people cope with Alzheimer’s. Whether that’s through education, emotional support, or providing local resources. This annual conference serves as council’s main educational seminar every year to help family members dealing with a loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s learn, connect, and share their experiences with others in similar situations.
