    The Association is pleased to announce that Natalie Mussi, Chief Executive Officer at Los Robles Health System, has signed on as the 2019 Westlake Village Walk to End Alzheimer’s Honorary Chair.
     
    Natalie Mussi stated, “I am proud to support my community and the Alzheimer’s Association in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. My family and I have a very personal connection to this cause since two of my grandparents were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. This is one way that I can give back and support my family’s journey and the many other individuals that have undergone or are currently experiencing similar struggles. Together, I know we can help end this epidemic and show our support for the millions of individuals currently living with this disease.”
