Emory University’s Goizueta Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center will host its 11th annual A Family Affair, its largest annual fundraiser, virtual this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of the shift to an online format, this year’s event is being called A Virtual Family Affair, and it will take place Nov. 19 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. This year’s event will include a welcome from co-chairs Sally and Jim Morgens, journalist Jaye Watson’s interview with Emory experts Allan Levey and Jim Lah, who will talk about the latest research and take your questions and a video to give you insights from Ken Hepburn, creator of the Savvy Caregiver program, about dementia caregiving during the pandemic. Tickets are $800 per person and $1,600 per couple. The visibility created by A Family Affair has helped raise awareness of the need for research of Alzheimer’s and mild cognitive impairment.
