Melville, NY — The Elder Law Office of Tully & Winkelman, P.C. will join local hospitals and the Alzheimer’s Association, Long Island Chapter in raising awareness of cognitive impairment with a presentation of the film “You Are Here.” The movie tells the story of a family dealing with one of its members suffering from cognitive impairment.
