Students worked with the College's Human Resources Division to raise awareness about Alzheimer's Disease. The group engaged participants in brain stimulating games, color sheets to enhance memory, stress squeeze animals, and lotion to soothe individuals who are in the role of caregiver. Brochures were provided to educate about Alzheimer's Disease and caregiver strain and answered questions and provided related disease and resources.
