ADD YOUR VOICE TO END ALZHEIMER’S!
Alzheimer's is the most expensive disease in the United States, costing taxpayers $21 million every hour. And the cost isn’t just financial — 1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia, and 5.7 million Americans are living with the disease.
Investing in medical research has a proven history of saving lives. This is why we need you to tell Congress to make Alzheimer's a priority by increasing research funding at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
On June 19, 2018 more than 1,000 Alzheimer's Association/ Alzheimer's Impact Movement advocates from all 50 states will flood Capitol Hill to ask Congress for this critical funding. Add your voice by joining our Thunderclap. The louder our voices, the more awareness we raise. Increased awareness = increased funding, which brings us closer to our vision of a world without Alzheimer's.
