This spring when I went to the Political Action Summit in Washington DC one of the things we were asking our congressional representatives was to support the National Alzheimer's Project Act. This Act would fund an office being set up within the Office of Health and Human Services to be responsible for coming up with a Plan to fight Alzheimer's and an interagency Advisory Council on Alzheimer's research and Treatment. Many countries already have an office such as this to coordinate the effects of Alzheimer's disease in their respective countries. We need this to make Alzheimer's a priority instead of brushing it under the carpet.
