We invite Forum attendees to join us at the National Alzheimer's Dinner, where we will honor public leaders working tirelessly to end Alzheimer's and celebrate the advances made in the fight against this disease.
Actor and Longtime Alzheimer's Association Champion
The Alzheimer's Association will present awards during the National Alzheimer's Dinner in acknowledgement of the critical work its supporters and partners are doing to advance science, advocacy and leadership. Awards include: The Alzheimer's Association Lifetime Achievement Award, the Alzheimer's Association Young Advocate Award and the Alzheimer's Impact Movement Humanitarian Award.
Presented in 2017 to Maria Shriver, founder of the Women's Alzheimer's Movement. Ms. Shriver has been a leading voice for the Alzheimer's community, connecting families, scientists, elected officials and other stakeholders together to work toward wiping out the disease.
Because of the impact she has made by so bravely sharing her personal story publicly, the Alzheimer's Association is proud to present Liz Hernandez with the Alzheimer's Association Young Advocate Award.
Bestowed annually upon public officials that have made a significant policy contribution to advancements in research and support for people with Alzheimer's disease, this year we will honor Reps. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) and Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.).
