Alzheimer's Advocacy Forum

Our thanks to Kate Mulgrew, an outstanding Alzheimer’s advocate who effectively makes the case that we must act now to overcome Alzheimer’s disease.

Check out Kate’s opinion piece that was posted on CNN.com.

All of us can do what Kate has done. Talk to your friends, family, and co-workers. Write to your local papers and tell them why Alzheimer’s needs to be a national priority. Call the district office of your congressman and explain the impact this disease has had on your loved ones. It’s the many voices that together that will make the difference. Each conversation, each call, each letter matters.

Best of all, register to join us in Washington, DC for the Advocacy Forum. We’ll train together as advocates, discuss what needs to be done and how to make the case, and then we’ll do it. On the last of the three days, we’ll head to the Hill and make our case directly to our Senators and Representatives in Congress. Our advocates consistently tell us what a rewarding time they have meeting new friends and advancing a cause that means so much to them.

Learn more about the Advocacy Forum or sign up today! Together we can take action and change the course of this disease.
