Luncheon & Program

An all day opportunity to:

  • Meet personally with members of the Ohio Senate and House of Representatives.
  • Put a face on Alzheimer’s.  Caregivers and their loved ones with dementia bring their personal story to the attention of the legislator representing their district.
  • Educate elected officials on the Council’s 2011 Public Policy Priorities.
  • Listen to legislators ideas of how they may want to help the Chapters – and therefore, those living with dementia - reach our common goals.
  • Attend the Annual Memory Day Luncheon. An opportunity for caregivers to support each other and honor the 2011 Sharen Eckert Leadership in Advocacy Award.
  • Present a united and growing number of advocates.  There is strength in numbers.

Deadline to register:  Tuesday, March 15, 2011.
The Central Ohio Chapter covers 14 counties.  It is very important that all 14 counties have a representative present on March 29.

Volunteers willing to assist/attend 2011 Memory Day at the Statehouse should contact: Gail Thomas at 614-457-6003 or gthomas@alz.org.

Ohio Public Policy Priorities – 2011
The mission of the Ohio Council of the Alzheimer’s Association is to provide a statewide advocacy voice to ensure that executive, legislative and judicial decisions meet the needs and represent the interests of Ohioans with Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, their families and caregivers. Today, an estimated 230,000 individuals in Ohio are affected by Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia - a figure that is expected to reach 700,000 by 2050.

Memory Day participants will be provided material on   2011 public policy priorities prior to the event.
