President's Message
Alzheimer's Awareness Month: Double Your Impact

Greetings!
Greetings on this Veterans Day. I’ve been thinking of some past friends of mine who served this country: one, Randal Brooks, a medic who is the Vice President of your ARPF, and another friend from way younger days who was killed in Vietnam. When we were last in Washington, D.C., we looked up his name on the wall. 
 
It's no coincidence that this newsletter falls on Veterans Day. Veterans, in particular, are at high risk for Alzheimer's disease (AD) because of the high stress they suffered and contributing medical issues such as heart disease and diabetes. At your ARPF, we will continue to recognize and support those who have served– past and present– and want to thank you for your service.
 
Furthermore, November is Alzheimer's Awareness Month. We want to call upon our readers to join in our cause: funding research for Alzheimer's prevention. We are working on life-changing research and are excited to make even bigger strides in prevention. We have always been the leader in prevention and want to continue to be so.

We were the first to describe an integrative medical program that we call "The 4 Pillars of Alzheimer's Prevention." We are the first to prove that Kirtan Kriya Memory Meditation can have a very powerful impact on the prevention and reversal of cognitive decline, most recently in high-risk women, a study we call The Pink Brain Project.
 
However, we can't continue our outstanding research without your help. So how can you make a difference?
 
Donate on November 30th: Giving Tuesday. Your contribution will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $20,000. Your support can go very far! Help us make the match and raise $40,000 to fund Alzheimer's research and outreach to underserved communities. This is an amazing opportunity to make new discoveries and help people worldwide.
 
Your support is deeply appreciated.

Let’s go forward and save the world. Help prevent Alzheimer’s disease now.
Yours in Brain Health,

Dharma Singh Khalsa, M.D.
President / Medical Director
Please donate on Giving Tuesday and double your impact. We are matching all donations up to $20,000, dollar for dollar. Please continue to support our progress in fighting AD.

Product Spotlight
Elephant Bracelet

An elephant never forgets. ARPF has developed a "Memory Band" with an elephant charm to remind us of the brain we can have – a sharp, healthy, and intelligent mind – as long as we follow the 4 Pillars of Prevention. This is a fun reminder that you can prevent or delay Alzheimer's disease, and help eradicate it as well. Join us in our mission by purchasing a memory band for yourself and those you love.

Donor Spotlight
Silver Fox Classic Golf Outing
Todd, his longtime friend George, and his community in Quakertown, PA pulled together and created the first annual Silver Fox Classic Golf Outing to honor his father’s legacy and raise money for Alzheimer’s awareness and prevention. The tournament was a huge success with over 100 golfers and guests joining the fun.
Todd’s advice to anyone who may be struggling with their memory is to speak up. “If you notice things are happening, it’s important to find out more. You need to speak up and see somebody because in our case, we could have dealt with it a little bit differently or even down the road have treated it differently. If my father had spoken out about how he was feeling, he may have had either more help or more emotional support. Take a step back if you are one of those people that are having some concerns with your health. Speak up because there are things that can be done. Even researching an organization like ARPF. At the very least, don’t just ignore it, go look for some support because it’s out there and it makes a huge difference.”

Golfers get ready for the tournament to begin.

Broccoli Soup

During the winter months, when there's not as much sunlight or outdoor activity, it's important to make sure your body gets the vitamins and nutrients it needs to function at a high level. That's where good food comes in. Nothing quite warms the soul like homemade soup. Check out this mouth-watering recipe.
If you’d like to shake things up this year, create a birthday fundraiser for ARPF that everyone can celebrate. Creating a Facebook birthday fundraiser is a popular way to give back to a cause you’re passionate about on your special day. Facebook makes it easy– all you have to do is invite friends and family members to donate to your ARPF fundraiser. Friends from around the globe can take part– it's quick and simple with no exchange rates or banks necessary. If you are interested in holding a fundraiser to support AD prevention, education, outreach or our research initiatives, please contact chelsea@alzheimersprevention.org
Do you buy or sell on eBay? You can easily round up your purchase or donate a portion of your sale to ARPF! Just follow the prompts and look for “Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation.”
