We CAN Florida is a statewide multi-media public service campaign. Our goal is to advance public awareness of the enormous impact of Alzheimer’s disease on the state of Florida – and that a cure is possible.
By leveraging the influence of its nearly 1,500 AAF members in 23 local chapters, or “federations” throughout Florida and the Caribbean, and partnering with researchers, community care organizations and the media, we plan to reach millions.
Our goals are ambitious, but by no means unattainable. First, we want to make major advancements in public awareness of –
Going beyond mere awareness, we will also drive support to community care organizations throughout the state and provide an information resource for patients and their families, caregivers, medical professionals, researchers and legislators.
And finally, we want to encourage more state government funding of Alzheimer’s research.
Along with our development partners throughout Florida, we encourage you to visit this site often, and to turn up the volume. Together, we can Cure Alzheimer’s Now.
