BROOMFIELD, Colo., Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Accera, Inc., a biotech company specializing in cognitive health, announced today the company has donated $50,000 to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) for sponsorship of its "National Memory Screening Day" (NMSD) during National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month.  These funds will be used to further the AFA's efforts to educate and support individuals with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and their families, especially about the importance of early detection of memory problems.
