The Alzheimer's Poetry Project (APP) was created by Gary Glazner to promote engagement and creativity among individuals with Alzheimer's, through poetry. Please feel free to review some of APP's media below.

Spoiler Ahead: We recently interviewed Gary Glazner and will be featuring the interview on our podcast in the near future. I started writing this post before we booked the interview, and published it after speaking with Gary.
