What do Australia, South Korea and the Netherlands have in common? They are among the growing number of countries that have realized Alzheimer’s disease will overwhelm their healthcare systems if left unchecked – and they are all preparing to do something about it. Each of these countries is developing a national plan to fight the disease. So far, the United States has not; it’s time to change that.

Three weeks ago, our congressional allies introduced the National Alzheimer’s Project Act in the House and Senate. Already we have 21 cosponsors in the House and 14 in the Senate. Support for this bill is the first step towards creating a national plan to solve the Alzheimer’s crisis.

The Alzheimer's Association will be working hard over the coming months to pass this important measure before the 111th Congress adjourns. We’ll be posting the latest news and information as we get it. Are your Members of Congress cosponsors? You can check here: http://bit.ly/a6fKZy.
