Telephone Town Hall on November 10th
To those of you who participated in the first, interactive Telephone Town Hall to collect input for a state plan for Alzheimer’s disease in Oregon -- thank you. More than 150 others from across the state were instrumental in helping us create Oregon’s plan to address the escalating public health crisis caused by Alzheimer’s. For those of you unable to join us, we still would like to gather your thoughts.
During this unique, live event, dozens of you shared your insights and ideas about how we can make progress in this difficult battle. Your collective thoughtfulness and passion was evident throughout the event, and you clearly have a personal stake in the success of our mission and programs. And it was important for us to spend time listening to your family stories and creative suggestions!
Please consider taking a few more minutes to evaluate this outreach event. Your opinions are very important to us as we work to create successful plan that works for those battling this disease and their family members and caregivers whose lives are also affected.
Participant surveys will be available starting Wednesday, November 16th.
If you missed the call, an mp3 recording is available.
If you have questions about this town hall, please contact Jon Bartholomew, Public Policy Director for the Alzheimer's Association Oregon chapter at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 503-416-0202.
