Alzheimer’s Listening Sessions Scheduled Throughout Wyoming

March 22, 2017

The University of Wyoming Center on Aging is among sponsors with the Wyoming Department of Health for Alzheimer’s disease informative listening sessions throughout the state.

Listening sessions are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.

The Wyoming Alzheimer’s Task Force is developing a plan to address Alzheimer’s disease in Wyoming. The group will partner with the Wyoming Alzheimer’s Association, St. John’s Medical Center and St. John’s Hospital Foundation, and AARP to gain insight from Wyoming residents on Alzheimer’s in the state.

The plan will gain insight into the lives of individuals caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. The plan will identify resources, detect resource gaps and map opportunities to improve the lives of individuals with dementia.

All listening sessions will be held from 3-5 p.m. Listening session dates and locations are:

-- Casper, Thursday, March 23, UW-Casper, Room UU322.
