Ohio takes first step to create a state plan for Alzheimer's to address needs of Ohio families
Ohio is poised to take its first step in developing a comprehensive state plan to address the growing impact of Alzheimer’s disease on Ohioans and the state’s public health systems. In a bi-partisan move, State Senator Steve Wilson (R-Maineville) and Ohio Senate Minority Leader Kenny Yuko (D-Richmond Heights) reintroduced legislation to create a process that would lead to an official plan of action to help Ohio confront the sweeping economic and social impact of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
