Political Action Summit




I'm in DC for the Alzheimer's Political Action Summit. Last night we had a candlelight vigil and David Hyde Pierce was there. We had 11,000 people also join us at the Lincoln Memorial on line through the virtual candlelight vigil as well. Alan and Jennifer joined us and Jennifer shot this group shot and then someone got a shot of them with the Washington Monument behind them. Today we had a luncheon that honored Social Security Commissioner Astrue for his work on adding Early On Set Alzheimer's to the Compassionate Care Allowance. It's been a good meeting so far -- we are off to Capitol Hill for talks with our legislatures tomorrow,
