The Alzheimer’s Association NYC chapter announced a new partnership with Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Delta Rho Omega chapter, in Brooklyn to help raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and increase education, care and support resources in the African-American community.

The partnership will engage both campus and alumni members of AKA through local community outreach efforts and participation in The Longest Day, a signature Alzheimer’s Association event.

Members of AKA will work with the New York City Alzheimer’s Association chapter to better engage the African-American community in the full mission, including connecting the Alzheimer’s Association to community partners, contacts and churches to open the doors for Alzheimer’s education, care and support.

The Delta Rho Omega chapter of AKA in Brooklyn was chartered in 1947 and has more than 110 members.
