Thanks to you and thousands of Alzheimer’s Association advocates, President Obama signed the National Alzheimer’s Project Act (NAPA) into law on January 4, 2011. This new law requires the federal government to create a National Alzheimer’s Plan to combat Alzheimer’s disease. Advocates just like you were crucial in the process of moving this legislation into law, and your voices and experiences are essential for its successful implementation.
The National Alzheimer’s Plan will be our country’s roadmap to address Alzheimer’s disease – for it to be effective, we must ensure that the federal government understands the challenges our families face each day as we fight Alzheimer’s.
View this personal message from the President about NAPA and give us your thoughts on what should be included in the National Alzheimer’s Plan.
Throughout August, the Alzheimer’s Association is continuing to gather feedback in communities across the country with “input sessions.” We will collect your thoughts and ideas and present them in a report to the Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius. These sessions are your opportunity to give direct feedback to decision makers in your community and in Washington. Visit the NAPA website to find a session near you.
We encourage you to share your experiences with Alzheimer’s disease to help the Alzheimer’s Association ensure the National Alzheimer’s Plan delivers real, true benefits that address the challenges faced every day by millions of Americans like you. Join us in raising your voice for Alzheimer’s awareness and support.
