Re: A One-Stop-Shop for Alzheimer's Disease Education & Resources in Illinois—LIVE April 1, 2022


Dear ADAC, State Agencies, ADRD Partners & Stakeholders,

The Illinois Department of Public Health and Rush University Medical Center partnered to create a redesigned website housed under The Illinois Cognitive Resources Network.  The website educates Illinoisans about the symptoms & early warning signs of Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias and increases awareness of culturally relevant resources that are available in local Illinois communities.  This online system aims to address some of the lessons learned during Lieutenant Governor Juliana Stratton & The Alzheimer's Association Illinois Chapter's 2019 Listening Tour.  They found that many individuals, caregivers, and families living with Dementia feel alone on the journey, especially those in underserved and underrepresented communities.  Click here to learn more @

Please share widely:
