Alzheimer’s disease is a growing epidemic with someone in the United States developing it every 65 seconds and is the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death. This is why Sigma Kappa is committed to putting an end to Alzheimer’s by creating a major funding stream to the national Alzheimer’s Association for research to find a cure.
