Advocacy

As Alzheimer's disease threatens to bankrupt families, businesses and our healthcare system, scientists are coming closer to finding better treatments that could drastically alter the course of the disease.

Alzheimer's advocates speak up for the needs and rights of people with Alzheimer’s and their families, and help persuade Congress to increase funding for research.

The Judy Fund recognizes advocacy as a critical area where funds and strategic efforts are needed to increase federal dollars for research and to advance important legislative policies for families living with Alzheimer’s.
