NASH and Alzheimer's disease awareness
JUNE was a busy month!
CARE held its first-ever health fair recognizing International NASH day. This morning was free and open to our patients who have participated in our clinical trials and their friends and family. Activities included blood pressure and other vital signs, blood sugar checks, bone densities, carotid artery scans, and liver ultrasounds. CARE staff played cornhole and had snacks with the attendees. Dr. Ritter had an "Ask Dr. Ritter" table and recruitment talked about what trials we are currently conducting and what was coming up. We had 6 "CARE" baskets as door prizes.
Also in June, CARE recognized the longest day of the year in honoring our participants and their caregivers affected by Alzheimer's disease. CARE's AD team gave out Forget-Me-Not flower seed packets, specialty cookies to patients, and magnets to their caregivers reminding them they are superheroes! The AD team handed out 400 Forget-Me-Not seed packets to our community at the local Kroger. We lit up our sign with purple spotlights and hung our "We CARE about ending Alzheimer's" banner.
