Share Your Voice: Become an Alzheimer's advocate in your community

The number of Americans with this devastating and heartbreaking disease is growing – and fast. There are more than 5 million people in the United States living with Alzheimer's today, and more than 16 million people will have the disease in this country by 2050.

Alzheimer’s is the only cause of death among the top 10 in America without a way to prevent, cure or even slow its progression.

Now is the time for our elected leaders to act. Their leadership is needed now more than ever and they need to hear your voice in Washington, D.C. and your state capitol. The Alzheimer's Association is pursuing a federal legislative agenda that will invest $2 billion in Alzheimer's research, provide access to care and support services, and create a national plan to solve the crisis.

Please get involved today! Become an Alzheimer's advocate in your community. Together we can create a world without Alzheimer's.

*Communications to Alzheimer's advoates will be in English.
