By Michèle Clavery Vice President, Alzheimer’s Association of Trinidad and Tobago
June 16 (last Sunday) marked a special day in the life of the Alzheimer’s Association of Trinidad and Tobago, AzATT. This year, AzATT marks 19 years of existence, becoming a non-profit organisation in 2000, a provisional member of Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) in 2003 and a full member from 2004. The ADI is the international federation of Alzheimer associations around the world.
The Association credits its birth to Norma Inniss, founder and first president. Inniss was also elected to Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) and she represented AzATT at the Canada-Caribbean Partnership Meeting.
