LIAF Press Releases

Whether we’re introducing new programs, receiving community service awards, or simply making an announcement, you can learn more about it here. We keep the community informed about the latest happenings at the Long Island Alzheimer's Foundation with a regular stream of press releases. We say “regular stream” because we’re always looking for innovative ways to view old problems and arrive at new solutions.

If you have questions or a media inquiry, our Communications Coordinator, Michelle Yadoo, is your one-stop source. Call Michelle at (516) 767-6856 ext. 20 or email her directly at myadoo@liaf.org.
