Day at the Hill 2015

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 their families. Advocates from across Iowa will convene at our State Capitol for the Alzheimer's Association 4th Annual Day at the Hill this spring - check back for the date! This event gave advocates a chance to join together and let policy makers know Alzheimer's disease priorities for Iowa are important to them. Many thanks to those who partipicated and continue to advocate for this cause.


Advocate with Us

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.
