Advocate

Volunteer to help shape laws at the federal, state or local level by talking with legislators and educating them about Alzheimer's related issues. Alzheimer's Association advocates have sucessfully raised government funds for Alzheimer's research and improved access to care and support services for people in their communities.

A big thank you to the nearly 100 advocates who visited the Wisconsin State Capitol in Madison for the Wisconsin State Alzheimer's Association Advocacy Day on March 11! The South Central Wisconsin chapter appreciates your support in working toward a state plan, expanded funding of local services and supports and passage of a new Silver Alert.
