Feedback & Keys to Success

How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?

BAW made us more aware of the special week, and created a focus for us. The benefits from the event are a more informed community. When the Alzheimer's event started 31 years ago, there was no education about the disease in our community. 31 years later, the Alzheimer's Conference continues to provide education to the community and especially caregivers and patients.
