Stephanie Monroe

Executive Director, AfricanAmericansAgainstAlzheimer's Network

Stephanie is Executive Director of AfricanAmericansAgainstAlzheimer’s, the first national network created specifically to respond to the disparate impact of Alzheimer’s on African Americans. By working nationally, locally, and through strategic partnerships, AfricanAmericansAgainstAlzheimer’s is raising awareness of the critical need to engage, connect, and mobilize to advance our national commitment to ending Alzheimer’s by 2025. One of the primary focuses of the network is a community-based initiative that works at the grassroots level to bring Alzheimer’s out of the shadows, dispel myths about the disease symptoms, and encourage greater participation in clinical research designed to more effectively prevent, treat, and eventually cure this dreaded disease. Much of this work is centered around a fully staged play called Forget Me Not, which is entering its fifth year touring with the network. Stephanie is a veteran political strategist, amateur photographer, Broadway enthusiast, and “Trekkie,” who just wants folks to “Live Long and Prosper” before they are “Beamed Up.”
