Connie Lesko

After a painful experience with her parents’ Alzheimer’s, Connie Lesko found herself feeling heartbroken for the Alzheimer’s patients who don’t have close family to advocate for them. She shifted her marketing career to focus on the senior living industry, where she has worked for the past fifteen years – including multiple stints at facilities that focus on Alzheimer’s patients. Connie is involved with the Byrd Alzheimer’s Research Center and Institute and chaired a major fundraising event. She is passionate about prevention, finding a cure, and a medication that can effectively treat Alzheimer’s symptoms, and knows that clinical trials are the key to finding answers.
