The Alzheimer’s Association® is holding input sessions across the country and locally across the metropolitan Washington area to gather ideas about what should be included in a coordinated national plan to better address the Alzheimer epidemic. We need to hear from individuals living with dementia, caregivers and friends, researchers, providers and other stakeholders. 

We need to hear from you! Your ideas, concerns and hopes will be included in our report and recommendations to U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius as she leads federal implementation of the National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA), which was passed unanimously by Congress in December and signed into law by the President in January.

You can make your voice heard in two ways:
