Together, we can make history.

The Alzheimer’s disease epidemic is here — and we have 10 years to make history by changing its trajectory.

More than 5 million people in the United States already have Alzheimer’s, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death, and there’s still no way to prevent, cure or slow its progression. The first goal of the National Plan to Address Alzheimer’s Disease is to prevent and effectively treat Alzheimer’s by 2025. Reaching that goal tomorrow requires our government to act today.

At the 2015 Alzheimer’s Association Advocacy Forum, you’ll work with other dedicated advocates to urge members of Congress to improve the lives of those already living with dementia, and to provide the funding to achieve the 2025 goal while there’s still time.

The time for us to act is now — your advocacy today can help us make history tomorrow. Join us at the 2015 Advocacy Forum.
