September is World Alzheimer’s Month

Alzheimer's is not a normal part of aging, although the greatest known risk factor is increasing age. While the majority of people with Alzheimer's are 65 and older,  up to 5 percent of people with the disease have early onset Alzheimer's which often appears in their 40s or 50s. Learn more about this sixth-leading cause of death in the US at www.alz.org External Link or call the 24/7 hotline at 1-800-272-3900.

Press play to hear a Public Service Announcement from the Atlantic County Division of Public Health.

Hello, I'm Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson, and I'd like to ask for your help.

As a lifelong county resident, I have observed that the strength of our community lies in our ability to help each other in times of need. And at no time is this strength greater tested than during an emergency.

That is where YOU can help.

The Atlantic County Division of Public Health is seeking both medical and non-medical volunteers to join its Medical Reserve Corps.

During a public health emergency, volunteers such as yourself, are needed to assist with the opening of large scale clinics for the distribution of antibiotics and immunizations, to direct clients, move supplies, serve food and act as interpreters.

Won't you consider stepping up to volunteer and support your neighbors in the Atlantic County community? It doesn't require a large amount of time, just a willingness to help.

For more information about the Atlantic County Medical Reserve Corps, call 609-645-5853. That's 609-645-5853.

This is Denny Levinson for the Atlantic County Division of Public Health. Working for healthy people and healthy communities.
