Attention!! Attention!! Attention!!


This year Chattanooga Area Nurses in Advanced Practice (CANAP) is participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® to raise awareness and funds to advance the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. Currently, more than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050. Our future is at risk unless we change the course of this devastating disease. And there’s something you can do about it -- walk with us!


Save the date.  The walk will be on September 19, 2015 at the Tennessee Riverpark at 9:00am. Feel free to invite your family and friends to join us.

The end of Alzheimer’s starts with you. To register yourself or others,
