U.S. Postal Service to issue Alzheimer's disease awareness stamp
The Alzheimer's Association and the Alzheimer's Impact Movement applaud the U.S. Postal Service for accepting the request of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) to issue a new stamp to promote Alzheimer's awareness and support research on the disease.
