State Advocacy Days in 2017

Richmond, Virginia:  Thursday, January 19
Annapolis, Maryland:  Thursday, February 9
District of Columbia:  Tuesday, June 20


State governments are increasingly on the front lines in addressing health issues facing America. As a result, every state must tackle Alzheimer's not only as an aging issue but also as a public health crisis. Alzheimer's Association chapters across the nation work with state officials to determine regulatory and statutory standards for dementia training, provide access to respite care, designate spending for state long-term care services, control Medicaid spending, and in a variety of other ways to provide care and support for those facing this dreaded disease.

If you and your family are impacted by Alzheimer’s or a related dementia, you are not alone. Join us at one of our upcoming Advocacy Days and unite your voice with others dedicated to increasing awareness about the nation's sixth-leading cause of death and the toll it takes on people with the disease and their families. 

For more information and/or to RSVP, contact Sadaf Ahmad at 703.766.9027 or email sahmad@alz.org
