Speak out for Alzheimer’s rights Aug. 5
July 9, 2013
Come to Swedish/Issaquah from 9-11 a.m. Aug. 5 to participate in a town hall meeting with the Alzheimer’s Association, Western and Central Washington State Chapter.
The meeting’s goal is to highlight and solicit feedback on public policy initiatives, including the National Alzheimer’s Plan, which touches on issues such as caregiver support, expanding research and public awareness. All public input will be recorded and used to inform the association’s work in advancing public priorities for the community.
Alzheimer’s is the third leading cause of death in Washington state and sixth nationally. By 2050, the disease could cost the country more than $1 trillion, according to the association, creating an enormous strain on health care, families and government budgets.
