Prager Metis CPAs is proud to announce that Co-Managing Partner, Glenn Friedman, has been elected as Chair of the Alzheimer’s Association New York City Chapter. Mr. Friedman has accepted the voluntary responsibility of driving the strategic core pillars of community concern and awareness, care and support, advocacy and public policy, diversity and outreach, research, and financial support of the Alzheimer’s Association.
In the past year, Prager Metis and its team members have partnered with the Association to raise funds through the Walk to End Alzheimer’s and The Longest Day, two signature events for the Alzheimer’s Association. In 2016, over $50,000 was raised to support research and increase care and support programs for all those affected by the disease.
The Alzheimer’s disease hits home for those of Prager Metis, as it directly affects many of our team member’s loved ones, including both CEO, Glenn Friedman and Chairman of the Board David Neste, who lost their fathers to the disease this past spring.
CEO, Glenn Friedman, stated, “Partnering with the Alzheimer’s Association has been incredible, our Prager Metis team members all coming together to bring us one step further to finding a cure to this disease.”
After the walk and spending more time with the Association, Mr. Friedman felt it was time for him to get involved on an independent level. “Working with the Association is an honor and privilege. Being able to be part of the process of the work they do is incredibly rewarding.”
Christopher Smith, Executive Director of the Alzheimer’s Association NYC Chapter, stated, “We are honored and excited to have Glenn serve as Chair of the NYC Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. His family connection to the disease gives him invaluable insights and a personal commitment to our mission and the strategic initiatives we support. Our Board and staff will benefit greatly from his leadership and professional expertise in the coming year.”
The Longest Day takes place on June 21, 2017, and Glenn Friedman along with Prager Metis are very much looking forward to it.
