AFA Teens for Alzheimer’s Awareness the official teenage branch of the
Alzheimer’s Foundation of America
Founded in 2002 by a teenager, AFA Teens seeks to mobilize teenagers nationwide to raise awareness of Alzheimer's disease and to engage teenagers in the cause. It is aimed at teens with family members affected by the disease and those purely interested in the cause.
AFA Teens’ dedicated Web site creates an online community for teens, giving them support from experts and the opportunity to share experiences and connect with each other through a bulletin board and blog.
