What do you think can be done in order to cure Alzheimer’s? What can be done to help family caregivers of persons with Alzheimer’s?
You can share your thoughts and ideas on August 4 at 8 p.m. ET, when the Alzheimer’s Association will host its first ever Tele-Town Hall. The purpose of the tele-town hall is to gather feedback on which issues the U.S. government should address in the National Alzheimer’s Project Act, signed into law in January. The Act will create a coordinated national plan to overcome the Alzheimer’s crisis and will ensure the coordination and evaluation of all national efforts in Alzheimer’s research, clinical care, institutional, and home- and community-based programs and their outcomes.
To share your thoughts during the tele-town hall, simple RSVP here: http://act.alz.org
- The Alzheimer’s Association also will hold listening sessions in various communities. One will take place in Chicago on August 9. For more information about the National Alzheimer’s Project Act and to learn if a listening session will take place near you, visit here.
