Walk to End Alzheimer’s
Heritage Plaza A-State Campus
Alzheimer’s isn’t stopping and neither are we. By participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s, we’re raising funds and awareness to advance the fight against this disease — funds that allow the Alzheimer’s Association to provide 24/7 care and support while accelerating critical research. Families facing Alzheimer’s and all other dementia need us now more than ever — and with your help, we can be there for them. Please make a donation or register with us. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease.  Join the “Arkansas Science Festival” team on our 2-mile walk on campus. Register here and click on “Join My Team” at the top left. Contact Dr. Amy R.

OCT 28, 3-6PM
A-State Museum
Complete with Frankenstein-themed activities, this fun event promises to bring out the mad scientist in all of us. As guests piddle in Dr. Frankenstein’s lab, they will discover what blood is made of and will be encouraged to play “Operation” on a life-sized image of Dr. Frankenstein’s monster. Additional activities will inspire visitors to probe inside icy hearts and brains, create monstrous creatures of their own, measure the electricity found in their own bodies, and much more.
The museum is located adjacent to the Dean B. Ellis Library on the Arkansas State University Jonesboro campus. Look for the clock tower. Contact Jill Kary at jkary@astate.edu or by calling 870-972-2074.
