Become an Advocate
Alzheimer's disease is one of the most critical public health issues in America, which is why we are unrelentingly advocating for change.
Tell us the advocacy activities that interest you most, and we'll contact you with opportunities to move the cause forward.
There are simple actions you can take to help influence national policy and create widespread awareness of this devastating disease.
Learn how this separately incorporated advocacy affiliate of the Alzheimer’s Association develops policies to overcome Alzheimer's disease.
The Association fights for critical research, prevention and care initiatives at the federal, state and local levels.
Alzheimer’s is the only leading cause of death in the United States that cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed. The only way to change this is through research.
We need policies that provide better health and long-term coverage to ensure high-quality, cost-effective care for the millions who are facing this disease.
We work to implement policies that provide support for all those living with Alzheimer's and their caregivers.
Our advocates, together with the Association and AIM, are responsible for historic public policy victories.
