The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence (TN) Lantern program director and Alzheimer’s Association community educator Ashley Briggs, Nashville Walk to End Alzheimer’s co-chairs Ben Brooks and Joe Fischer, Walk to End Alzheimer’s Tennessee chapter development manager Emily Hinton, and manager Sara Thompson attended the 2020 Alzheimer’s Association Leadership Summit in Orlando, Florida as five program volunteers selected to represent the Tennessee chapter. The summit is held each year to provide additional resources and training for Alzheimer’s Association staff and select volunteers. This year, with a renewed mission statement, the Alzheimer’s Association is focusing on reaching more families who lack knowledge of the resources available to them. New legislative acts, advancements on research, and Early Stage programs were also part of the exciting news shared by CEO Harry Jones and his team.
Morning Pointe associates stay connected and involved with important causes, especially the work of organizations like the Alzheimer’s Association, throughout the Southeast. As a community educator for the Alzheimer’s Association, Briggs educates and informs local businesses, schools, healthcare professionals, and those who serve the greater community about Alzheimer’s disease and the resources available. Morning Pointe strives to be a resource for caregivers of those in our communities and surrounding areas.
