About Us

YouthAgainstAlzheimer’s, co-convened by the Youth Movement Against Alzheimer's and UsAgainstAlzheimer's, positions Alzheimer’s as an urgent economic and public health issue impacting families across generations by mobilizing young people and youth-serving organizations through storytelling, advocacy, and coalition building.

Young People and Alzheimer’s

As the prevalence of dementia continues to grow in an aging America, and with increasingly earlier identification of persons with dementia, young adults are emerging as a significant caregiving resource. UsAgainstAlzheimer's partnered with the USC Roybal Institute on Aging to look at the unique impact of dementia caregiving on millennials.
