Alzheimer’s Association Visits Statehouse

Lawmakers received a different kind of visitor today as they arrived to their State Capitol offices on the last Friday of the 2010 Regular Session of the 79th Legislature. Representatives from the West Virginia Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association were on hand to deliver “Blueberry Brain Boosts” to members offices as well as to visitors in the Capitol Rotunda area. Blueberries, rich in antioxidants, protect the body against free radicals associated with the aging process.

The Alzheimer’s Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research and seeks to provide free services to individuals dealing with Alzheimer’s disease, their families and communities. West Virginia currently has approximately 48,000 individuals with this disease and in the United States, roughly 5.3 million people are living with Alzheimer’s disease.
