Join the cause



As Alzheimer's disease threatens to bankrupt families, businesses and our healthcare system, scientists are coming closer to finding better treatments that could drastically alter the course of the disease. Now is the time to join us and speak up for the needs and rights of people with Alzheimer's and their families, and help persuade Congress to address those needs through legislative action.

The Alzheimer’s Association -San Diego / Imperial Chapter invites you to become an Alzheimer advocate. Join us and speak up for the needs and rights of people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families.

Add your voice to ours — become an advocate today.

What is an advocate?

Alzheimer advocates play an important role in improving the quality of care and quality of life for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families by working to improve dementia care and services; improve access to community-based care; improve quality care in residential settings; and expand funding for research and public programs serving people with dementia.

As an advocate, you will: 

  • Receive regular updates about current legislative and public policy issues
  • Stay on top of policy and legislative issues through alerts and updates
  • Make calls or write to legislators to forward public policy priorities to improve quality of life for those living with Alzheimer’s.

For more information on how you can get involved, contact Shelita Weinfield at 858.966.3302 or email shelita.weinfield@alz.org.
