Department of Mental Health Law and Policy Assistant Professor Nik Lampe, PhD, and the USF Student Association for Aging Studies (SAAS) participated in the Alzheimer's Association Florida Gulf Coast Chapter’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s® event at Amalie Arena in Tampa.
Lampe engaged with community members during the event as an Alzheimer’s Association-funded researcher, discussing their Alzheimer’s Association Research Fellowship to Promote Diversity study on risk and protective factors for Alzheimer's disease in LGBTQ+ older populations.
SAAS partnered with Forever Friends, the Work Stress Lab, and Alpha Sigma Kappa to fundraise for the Alzheimer’s Association and raise community awareness about Alzheimer’s disease. SAAS officers Tanjina, Nicole, and Neha coordinated the group's efforts in the walk and initiated relations outside of the organization to have a bigger impact.
