Jacquelyn Seth is the founder of Curing Alzheimer’s Now (CAN) Dream Foundation. CAN Dream Foundation was started in 2007 after the passing of Jacquelyn’s grandmother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Jacquelyn witnessed the devastating effects of the disease on her family and the lack of discussion and support in the African American community for those dealing with the disease. She then set out to help remove the stigma of Alzheimer’s disease and increase awareness and involvement among African Americans and other diverse communities.

Jacquelyn Seth participates in local health fairs and currently sits on the Johns Hopkins University Memory and Aging Community Advisory Board (MACAB). Through Jacquelyn’s leadership, CAN Dream Foundation partners with the Medical Education Resource Initiative for Teens (MERIT) by providing professional development training and Alzheimer’s disease awareness seminars to teens interested in pursuing careers in medicine.
