Message from Cass Naugle, Executive Director, Alzheimer's Association Greater Maryland Chapter
The start of the new year is the time to take a hopeful look forward to the year ahead. The Alzheimer's Association has been working nationally to create a 10-year vision for the organization that confronts the growing challenges of Alzheimer's disease. During 2014, we will begin implementing a plan to address this vision:
- The Association will contribute to research breakthroughs that are life-changing for people with Alzheimer's disease by driving the international research agenda. This includes developments across treatment, diagnosis/detection and prevention, and requires ongoing advances in tools, processes and systems that will facilitate breakthroughs.
- The Association will contribute to a dramatic increase (to 90%) in the accurate and timely diagnosis of people with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias and a significant increase in the number of people with dementia and their caregivers who receive affordable, high-quality care and support (to 80% of people with the disease).
Throughout this newsletter, you will find ways to become an active partner in making this vision a reality: opportunities to advocate, participate, donate and educate.
We look forward to working with you in 2014!
