Forget Me Not

September 30 @ 1:00 pm

Millions of Americans are intimately familiar with Alzheimer’s disease, either through first-hand experience or as a caregiver. But for African Americans, who are twice as likely to develop AD as others, the symptoms often go unaddressed because of denial, stigma, and an acceptance of memory loss as a normal part of aging.  Directed by Garrett Davis, Forget Me Not, takes the audience into the life of a family facing Alzheimer’s disease and shows the disease’s impact on relationships between family members, friends and people in the community.  

Forget Me Not is sponsored by the  Global Alzheimer’s Platform Foundation and African Americans Against Alzheimer’s, which strives to raise awareness and encourage greater minority participation in research  necessary to end Alzheimer’s.
