The Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus, in conjunction with the TWU chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. (AKA), is helping to raise awareness of Alzheimer's Disease.

The TWU chapter of AKA, a sorority dedicated to domestic and international servant-leadership, is including in its efforts this semester programming to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s Disease.  In conjunction with this undertaking, books on the disease and related conditions are on display in the Blagg-Huey Library's first-floor lobby (just inside the front entrance.)  The volumes, compiled by Reference Librarian Jimmie Lyn Harris from the library's General and Children's Collections, will be on display through Sunday, June 14, 2015. All titles are available for checkout.

For more information on Alzheimer's Disease--including signs and symptoms, treatment and information on support groups and services for affected people and their caregivers--consult the Alzheimer's Disease Fact Sheet from the National Institute on Aging of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

The Alzheimer's Association is the world's leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research.  See their website for information on the disease; programs and services available in your area; research updates; joining the fight against Alzheimer's; and more.  #ENDALZ
