Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute is sponsoring a community breakfast and program about dementia to mark minority health month. The free event begins with breakfast and a performance by the Amazing Grace Chorus, which is composed of people with dementia and their friends and family.

 

Speakers include:

  • Dr. Stephanie Johnson, a Milwaukee native, who is both a research neuropsychologist and the primary caregiver for a mother with dementia. Dr. Johnson will talk about her experiences with the health care system and describe how three generations of her family have been impacted by dementia.
  • Lou Holland, Jr., will talk about his father, Racine native and former Badger football star Lou Holland, Sr., who created a nationally-known investment business and was a regular on the PBS program “Wall Street Week” before he developed Alzheimer’s disease. The Holland family is committed to raising awareness and money to fight the disease.
  • Ahman Green set records as a running back at Green Bay. Off the field, his mother’s Alzheimer’s has led to his commitment to raise awareness about the impacts of the disease.
