Eric Hall

Rev. Eric J. Hall is president and CEO of HealthCare Chaplaincy Network, Inc. Most recently, he was founder, president and CEO of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA), a leading national nonprofit organization. AFA’s primary goal is to improve the quality of care for individuals and their families affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. His vision and leadership brought together more than 1,600 member organizations and associate member organizations from coast-to-coast. These efforts have united these organizations to speak with one voice to advocate for optimal care and enhanced local support services.

Eric has served on the National Advisory Council on Alzheimer’s Disease, working with the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services and other national experts to develop and implement the nation’s first plan to address this disease.

Eric believes in the power and potential of collaboration. In 2010 he co-founded LEAD (Leaders Engaged on Alzheimer’s Disease), the nation’s first and only coalition of for profit and not for profit organizations unified behind the cause. More than 50 companies and organizations participate.

Prior to founding AFA, Eric was CEO of a local grassroots Alzheimer’s organization on Long Island, NY. He also served as treasurer for the New Jersey branch of the Capuchin Franciscan Friars, an international religious order. In this role Eric, as one example of programs and services he established, directed the creation of a multi-million dollar living facility for mature adults in the Bronx, NY.
