Message from Cass Naugle, Executive Director, Alzheimer's Association Greater Maryland Chapter
I always find that spring brings a sense of renewed hope. It awakens a spirit of clearing out the clutter in our lives and focusing on what’s important. Here’s what has been, and will continue to be, our focus in the coming months:
Maryland’s Virginia I. Jones Commission on Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders submitted the Maryland State Plan on Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders to the Governor in December 2012. The recommendations are outlined in this newsletter, and the complete document can be read on our website at www.alz.org/maryland. We look forward to beginning work on the implementation of the recommendations during this year.
The release of the first-ever National Alzheimer's Plan in May 2012 showed that our advocacy efforts can create change. Join us in our nation's capital April 22-24, 2013, for the 25th Alzheimer's Association Advocacy Forum as we once again come together to make a difference in the fight against Alzheimer's. Learn more at alz.org/forum/overview.
The Alzheimer’s Association Annual Dementia Conference: Making Connections
conference on April 26, 2013, for the first time will offer cutting-edge educational sessions for professionals, family caregivers and those with early-stage dementia. We are bringing together the best of local and national expert speakers for a rich day of learning and empowerment.
Thanks to the support of good friends like you, we have accomplished much. However, we recognize that in order to meet the challenge of growth, we must involve more people in our cause. Throughout this newsletter you will finds ways to become an active partner in our mission: opportunities to advocate, participate, donate and educate. We look forward to working with you.
