This event will provide an overview of recent, important developments in Alzheimer’s research, and a behind-the-scenes look at how local advocates here in the Napa Valley and around the country are coming together to change public policy, accelerate research and improve care and support for the growing number of American families facing Alzheimer’s.
Come learn how the Alzheimer’s advocacy movement has won historic increases in funding for Alzheimer’s research, leading to the near-constant flow of recent Alzheimer’s research breakthroughs (and some heartbreaking failures) that you’ve probably been hearing about lately.
We’ll also describe public policies advocates are pursuing at the local, state and federal level to improve early detection, diagnosis and care for those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, and their families.
You’ll learn where to turn for help if you need it, and how to get involved locally if you so desire.
Light refreshments will be provided.
