Nu Upsilon is honored to announce our Call to Action...
This year our focus will be ... Alzheimer's.
Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia. It makes up 60% to 80% of all dementia cases. Alzheimer's is not a normal part of aging — it's a progressive brain disease, meaning it gets worse over time. Two abnormal brain structures called plaques and tangles are the main features of Alzheimer's disease. Currently, an estimated 50 million people worldwide are living with dementia, including more than 5 million Americans. Without changes in prevention or treatment, this number could reach nearly 14 million by 2050.
All of our leaders and committees are coming together to virtually connect, share, and support each other. Nu Upsilon will strive to educate and engage our members through a variety opportunities to become involved. Watch the events on our website
service projects, continuing education, conferences and more. For more information, see our Embracing our Seniors
