General Membership Meeting Highlights

Thank you to those who attended the RESDC General Membership Meeting on August 15 in Chula Vista. We hope you found it informative! Below is an overview, with links to where you can find more information about the topics presented by our speakers.

Alzheimer's San Diego

Our first presenter was Shelita Weinfield, President of Alzheimer's San Diego. Their mission is to provide local families with support, information, and resources, while advancing critical local research for a cure. In 2015, the board of the San Diego chapter of the Alzheimer's Association decided to separate from the national organization so that they could best serve those affected by Alzheimer's and dementia in our community. Here are some of the programs that were presented at the meeting:

  • Alzheimer's San Diego offers a variety of free classes and workshops throughout the county for those with memory loss concerns, families, caregivers and the community. More info...
  • Date with a Cure on Sept. 9 at the University of San Diego Shiley Theatre (5998 Alcala Park, San Diego, CA 92110) is a free event that's open to the public. It provides a rare opportunity to discuss Alzheimer’s and dementia with world-class experts working to find new treatments – and a cure – for this disease. More info...
  • RESDC is proud to announce our participation in Walk4ALZ to raise awareness and funds to advance the fight against Alzheimer's disease. The walk will take place on Saturday, October 21 at Balboa Park (2131 Pan American Plaza, San Diego, CA 92101). All proceeds from this event will stay in San Diego. We welcome our members to join us on Team RESDC! More info...

All programs are at no cost to the caregiver.
