Several Opportunities for You to Share

I wanted to take a few minutes to point you in the direction of a few upcoming events. I apologize for the late notice on the first one, but I've been out of town a few days.

Here is a link to a webcast tomorrow (Friday, July 22 at 12 noon ET) about the value of knowing about an early diagnosis of Alzheimer's. Here is a description I was forwarded

Our upcoming webcast event, “Alzheimer’s: What is the Value of Knowing Early? A View Across Five Countries” presented in collaboration with Reuters will focus on the public’s perception of the disease, where the medical and scientific communities currently are with testing and treatment, and what governments in countries around the world are doing to address this growing public health crisis

If you go to the link you can post questions for the panelists.

2. The National Alzheimer's Project Act (NAPA) is seeking input from people that have been affected by the disease. Many states are holding input sessions. (Ours in Georgia is on Saturday August 13th). To find a town hall meeting/input session in your area go to and click on the events tab. It will bring up many of the input sessions across the country that you have a chance to participate it. This is our chance for us to be heard. Please take a moment and check it out -- we don't get this opportunity very often, so please take advantage of it.
