The new year is a time to reaffirm our commitments and resume our work to achieve our goals. As we begin 2017, the Alzheimer's Association is grateful for the continued support of NARFE members in our research and policy efforts to bring us closer to our vision of a world without Alzheimer's. In this issue, as we look at how both research and advocacy have a role to play in addressing the disparities in the disease's impact on women, we invite you to join us at the Alzheimer's Association Advocacy Forum in Washington, D.C., on March 27-29.

Early-bird registration is available until March 3.
