The COAACH Caregiver College (C3) is a community-engaged and intervention-based education program designed to improve awareness, care management and health outcomes for families impacted by Alzheimer’s, diabetes and related conditions. The program will stress disease literacy, diabetes management, and caregiving strategies.

The goal of the C3 is to empower your organization with the latest information, actionable plans for events and methods to support caregivers.  Your help is needed to erase the stigma of Alzheimer’s and provide those in need with the tools to address this devastating disease.

C3 participants have fun learning and become part of a community, an highly professional network being built by COAACH to increase awareness, support and research.
