Lycoming College student organizations Circle K and Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity hosted speaker Clayton Jacobs, vice president of programs and services for the Greater Pennsylvania Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, on Sept. 12.
Jacobs discussed memory loss, aging and dementia associated with the disease, and how students can make a difference in the fight against Alzheimer's.
The program was a kick-off to a campaign for the local Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's, co-sponsored by the two organizations, to be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at Indian Park in Montoursville.
Student and community groups will participate as teams to raise support for Alzheimer's research.
