APA is supporting National Memory Screening Day, which is being held this year on November 18, and urges APA members to participate by publicizing the event and performing screenings.

The screenings are free, and all results are confidential.

National Memory Screening Day is an annual initiative of the Alzheimer's Foundation of America. In 2007 a record 2,000 sites participated nationwide, and an estimated 40,000 people were screened.

The goal of this initiative is to raise awareness of the need for early detection of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias and educate people about appropriate medical treatment and social service interventions.
