Advocacy Resources

Your Voice Matters!

Conquering Alzheimer's disease is as much a matter of public policy as scientific discovery. By raising important issues and educating elected officials as an Alzheimer's Association Advocate, YOU can save lives.

As an advocate, you will:

  • Generate action from our elected officials
  • Stay informed of the latest policy and legislative issues
  • Elevate Alzheimer's from a disease to a cause

From nationwide networks of families living with Alzheimer's engaging local elected officials to Alzheimer's Ambassadors who lead the movement by directly maintaining relationships with policymakers on Capitol Hill, people across the country are joining the fight against Alzheimer's.

Learn more about how you can join the fight as an advocate for the cause.
