Under normal conditions, we hold meetings in-person every Tuesday at 8pm at Page-Robinson Hall, room 202. Meetings are always no more than 30 minutes so they're not a huge time swamp, and we typically plan future events, have fun discussing past events, watch and discuss either a cool video or mini-lecture related to Alzheimer's, and much more. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be hosting meetings over Zoom at 8:00 pm EDT every other Thursday, starting September 17th, discussing subjects like those listed above. We will also be sending out materials every week through ListServ (an electronic mailing list that you can sign up for by clicking the "Get Involved" button below), and also make meeting resources accessible here (below) after meetings are held!

The next meeting is Thursday (03/11)! Hope to see you there!
