Florida Times-Union - 9/12/2018
Sept. 12--As part of efforts to educate leaders and decision makers about Alzheimer's disease and its human and economic toll, the Alzheimer's Disease Research Center at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville and AfricanAmericansAgainstAlzheimer's are jointly presenting the play "Forget Me Not" at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday at The Ritz Theatre & Museum, 829 N. Davis St.
The play, written by award-winning playwright Garrett Davis, tells the story of an African American family coping with Alzheimer's disease. It was written to raise awareness about the disease, overcome barriers to clinical trial participation and shed light on Alzheimer's disproportionate impact on the African American community.
