Raising Money to End Alzheimer's

The University’s Chapter of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NSSLHA) recently volunteered at the two-mile Walk to End Alzheimer’s that was held at PNC Field. Through the efforts of more than 850 participants, over $100,000 was raised. Money raised will provide funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.
