Alzheimer's Town Hall Meetings
In 2011 and 2012, we held town hall meetings all around Oregon, collecting your feedback on what should be in the State Plan and the National Plan for Alzheimer’s disease. After hearing from you, those plans have been created and are now being implemented.
We now want to share with you how the plans are making a difference and get your feedback on what else needs to be done. Furthermore, we heard your comments last year that you want to know more about how to address the impact of dementia on your family. So this year, we will have presenters discussing local resources that will be helpful to you.
