Alzheimer’s champions in Congress are close to pushing the National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA) through in the remaining months of this year, and now they need your help. They have the momentum, but they will only finish the job if their colleagues – your Senators and your Representatives – hear from you, your family and your friends. Some members of Congress have told us they haven’t heard from constituents about why the passage of NAPA is a national priority. We have to stop the excuses for inaction and leave no doubt on Capitol Hill where the Alzheimer’s community stands. Congress is back at home throughout August we’re asking Alzheimer advocates to meet with every member of Congress over the next month to send a clear message - ignoring the Alzheimer’s crisis is simply unacceptable to the millions of Americans determined to overcome this disease. We can’t wait. Alzheimer’s disease is the public health crisis of the 21st century and we need a national strategic plan this year. What can you do right now? Join us as an Alzheimer’s advocate today, and tell Congress it’s time to act. Then, to participate with us this August in your hometown, contact your local chapter and find out how you can join in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. Just a few hours of your time this month can help our country change the course of this disease. Thanks for joining us, Robert Egge Vice President of Public Policy Alzheimer’s Association
