Advocates from across Iowa will convene at our State Capitol for the Alzheimer's Association 5th Annual Day at the Hill on March 23, 2016.

Many thanks to those who partipicated and continue to advocate for this cause.
The Alzheimer's Association provides leadership in the public policy arena with the goal of improving policies and programs affecting Iowans who live with Alzheimer's and thier families. Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive, degenerative disease of the brain and the most common form of dementia. Despite promising scientific advances, there is still no cure. The Alzheimer’s crisis is no longer emerging, it is here. With the first wave of Iowa’s baby boomers having reached age 65, Alzheimer’s impact on our state’s families, communities and businesses will be devastating. There are currently 62,000 residents in Iowa aged 65 and older battling Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
