Utah Advocacy
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

 Alzheimer's disease is the 6th leading cause of death, and affects millions of people daily. At the Association, we are working toward a time when we will have effective treatments, preventive strategies and gold-standard care for all people affected by Alzheimer's disease.  Join our network of advocates, and we'll send you timely alerts to take simple actions that will help influence state and national policy and create widespread awareness of this devastating disease.
Contact Ronnie Daniel at rdaniel@alz.org to learn how you can become an advocate in Utah.

On March 11, 2015, HB 175 was passed and funded! Governor Herbert signed the bill-Alzheimer's disease is a public health issue. Our thanks to Representative Paul Ray for sponsoring House Bill 175 and those in the Legislature who saw the importance of implementing the Utah State Plan for Alzheimer's disease and  related Dementias.  And to our many advocates who work tirelessly, helping us to make Alzheimer's a priority in Utah.

Special Thank You to Utah Advocates
