Josseyln Winslow, co-founder and former executive director of the Bellingham-based Alzheimer Society of Washington, was recently selected to serve on the board of trustees for the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA).
AFA works with 1,400 member organizations across the nation to provide better care for those affected by dementia-related diseases, and Winslow, whose mother had dementia, has become a recognized expert in the Alzheimer’s support community.
“I learned from experience and find it rewarding to share this knowledge with others,” Winslow said. “It is an honor to join AFA’s board as they work on a national level to raise Alzheimer’s awareness, improve care and advocate for people affected by dementia.”
Alzheimer Society of Washington provides local support to people (both with memory loss and caregivers) affected by all forms of dementia. The group offers a variety of free resources and works to develop community awareness and understanding of the disease. For more information, visit www.alzsociety.org.
