Day at the Hill 2016
The Alzheimer's Association provides leadership in the public policy arena with the goal of improving policies and programs affecting all those who live with Alzheimer's and their families. Advocates from across Iowa will convene at our State Capitol for the Alzheimer's Association 6th Annual Day at the Hill on March 9, 2017. This event allows advocates to learn more about our current state priorities, the legislative process and how they can engage with elected officials.
We need Iowans like you to share your story with policy makers to let them know Alzheimer's disease priorities for Iowa are important. Many thanks to those who participated last year and continue to advocate for this cause.
Join us. Let your voice be heard!
Date: Thursday, March 9, 2017
Time: 9:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Location: Iowa State Capitol - 1007 East Grand Ave, Des Moines, IA 50319

Advocate with Us
The Alzheimer's Association East Central Iowa Chapter works closely with other Alzheimer's Association Chapters serving Iowa to collaborate on state issues relevant to our constituent concerns. Alzheimer's advocates play an important role in improving the quality of life for people with Alzheimer's disease and their families by working to improve dementia care services, access to community-based care, and quality care in residential settings. They also work to expand funding for research and public programs serving people with dementia.
As an advocate, you will:
- Receive regular updates about current legislative and public policy issues
- Stay on top of policy and legislative issues through alerts and updates
- Make calls or write to legislators to forward policy priorities to improve quality of life for those living with Alzheimer's
