Please join us on February 8th for a virtual fundraising dinner to celebrate and support Institute on Aging. At IOA, our programs foster meaningful connections among the communities and people we serve, and we could not do it without your connection to us.
We are thrilled to have Olympic Champion Kristi Yamaguchi tapped to emcee the evening, and Dr. Daniel Gibbs, a neurologist who cared for patients with Alzheimer’s (a disease which now affects him), as a featured guest speaker.
Kristi Yamaguchi captured the gold medal in the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville, France in figure skating. She is also a 2-time World champion and U.S. National Champion. Kristi is a member of the US Figure Skating Hall of Fame, World Figure Skating Hall of Fame and the US Olympic Hall of Fame. She recently received the USOPC’s Jesse Owens Olympic Spirit Award for “serving as a powerful force for good in society” as well as the 2019 Heisman Humanitarian Award for the work of her Always Dream organization. Kristi resides in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, 2-time US Olympian and Stanley Cup Champion, Bret Hedican, and their daughters Keara and Emma.
Dr. Daniel Gibbs is one of 50 million people worldwide living with Alzheimer’s disease. Unlike most patients with Alzheimer’s, Dr. Gibbs worked as a general neurologist for twenty-five years, caring for patients with the disease now affecting him. He began to suspect he had Alzheimer’s before any official diagnosis could be made: he noticed a loss of his sense of smell and mild cognitive impairment several years before tests would have alerted him. He has written about his experiences living with Alzheimer’s disease in his book A Tattoo on my Brain: A Neurologist’s Personal Battle against Alzheimer’s Disease.
