Alzheimer's Communicaton Guide for Public Health Professionals
Cover Page to the Integrating Alzheimer's Messages into Chronic Disease Programs Communication Guide

Public professionals can work with chronic disease prevention and control programs and their partners to develop effective communication strategies and leverage existing communication channels to promote the inclusion of brain health messages into chronic disease risk reduction programs. The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have collaborated to develop this communication guide [PDF – 4 MB]. The information in this guide are not intended to be stand-alone campaigns, but rather integrated into existing disease risk reduction programs.

Customizable Brain Health Rack Cards and Infographic

CDC’s Alzheimer’s Disease and Healthy Aging Program and the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) partnered to incorporate brain health messages into existing chronic disease messages. The four rack cards and infographic are downloadable and include risk reduction messages about how the promotion of these behaviors can reduce risk for memory loss and promote brain health. Rack cards and infographic can also be customized to include your organization’s logo. For more information and approval to customize, please see NACDD Action on Healthy Aging and Brain Health.
