An alumna of the Trinity College of Graduate Studies, Dr. Miriam Galindo practices as a licensed clinical social worker and licensed clinical psychologist in Irvine, California. Alongside her work with families and children, Dr. Miriam Galindo supports the Alzheimer’s Association (AA).

Listed as one of best nonprofits for which to work by The NonProfit Times for eight consecutive years, AA is the leading organization of its kind. It strives to provide the best care and resources available to individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia.

As a cure for the memory loss disease remains undiscovered, AA hosts regular events to raise funds for research, including the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Organizers plan these walks on an annual basis in numerous cities across the United States, and the next event in Irvine, California, will take place on September 30.

Participants will convene at Orange County Great Park to help hit the funding goal of $165,000. Individuals can join a team or create one of their own for the two-mile walk. For more information, visit www.alz.org.
